Hi

I have some currently working code that prints reports from a web app (so no user interaction). In order to save paper during testing, I was hoping I could send print jobs to a Linux Special (pseudo) printer (print to file-pdf). I thought that simply configuring a new printer then using the printer name in my app would do the trick.

I tried this, and my new printer isn't printed out:



These are the only print attributes I set (these are sent to Jasper reports if that matters):



Is this possible at all? Or maybe some extra work is needed for it to work? Or maybe there's another, simpler way?

Thanks
