Print html file without seeing a print dialog box

i need to script an action that would allow a user to print a sparcly formated html file to a printer while bypassing the normal print dialog box.
the unix lpr command seems like it might work, but the man page only mentions PS and txt files.
Ultimately i'd want to trigger the print action from a php script, but it could be a folder action also.
Does anyone have any suggestions or point me in the right direction.

lp is the right command to use but you may need to convert the html file in PDF format before printing it. Just test it. Also type man lp to see more options.
enscript is a nice utility that may help you. man enscript for more.

  • Printing from FLASH without "Print dialog Box" Pop-up window?

    hi guys,
    i got a flash + OSX question, maybe someone can help me,
    i'm working on a Adobe Flash (Flash version 9, actionScript
    3) project, running on a MacOS X 10.4, on a core2duo iMac, it is
    connected to a printer (Xerox Phaser 6360).
    - the flash will be displayed in full screen.
    - it is a "create your own postcard- &- print it out"
    flash-based multimedia project.
    - so Flash will need to print stuff.
    issue is:
    - everytime when something need to be printed, macOS X will
    prompt a "Print Box" pop-up window say Cancel or Print (see my jpeg
    below).
    - so it might overlap on top of my Flash project, which is
    running full screen (so having the pop-up window overlapping my
    flash is no good).
    so i need a solution to avoid this, any idea?
    what i can think of are:
    A- is there a way to avoid/by-pass this step? meaning a way
    not to show this?
    or
    B- or is there a shareware/way to "auto-click RETURN button"
    so even this screen appear it will be "auto-click" away.
    or ..C?
    i knew there is a Plug-in (or Xtra) for Macromedia Director
    called: Print-o-matic,
    the URL is:
    http://www.printomatic.com/products.cfm/
    it work well on the Director on Mac OS7, but they only made
    it for Director & Authorware, not Flash :-( do you know
    something similar for Flash?
    this
    is the pop-up Print dialog box i meant (which i want to avoid),
    click to view
    or u can copy the URL to view there:
    http://photos-g.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v193/184/11/743997016/n743997016_546542_881 6.jpg
    about the printer URL:
    [url=http://www.office.xerox.com/printers/color-printers/phaser-6360/enus.html]High
    speed color for high volume printing - Phaser 6360[/url]
    hope i'm able to get a solution here.
    thanks guys,
    cheers,

  • Print frame without print dialog box

    I want to thank everybody for the print swf file on the
    raisingaimee site, but my question goes a bit further. I'm working
    on a new quiz project and would like the results page to
    automatically print out when the user reviews the quiz. OR when the
    user clicks a button (say, continue or something similar) that the
    review frame will automatically print to the default printer
    without the print dialog box popping up. Is this possible?

  • I can no longer print to the 3 Canon printers on my local area network. The print dialog box states that the print file is accepted and the job is printing, but the files never print. Everything worked when the computer and printers were initially set up.

    It means something in user profile should be configure to run excel print operation. Could you please somebody help what I need to configure in user profile that makes print operation success?

  • Can't see printer name in the print dialog box as the printer name is too long

    This is actually causing siginificant pain as I am using a tablet and moving around a number of floors/buildings needing to be able to print from where I am.
    When printing from Acrobat reader, the print dialog box that comes up does not have a horizontal scroll bar and does not fit in the names of the printers in my organisation. We are unable to change the printer name, so it basically means that when using Acrobat, we can't select a printer.
    All other windows applications show more characters and also have a horizontal scroll bar in the print dialog box so you can scroll across to see the rest of a long printer name. Why is acrobat not using the standard windows print dialog?
    Has anyone come across this? Help!

    This is the Acrobat forum, not the Reader forum. In the future you should check there. I am not sure why you can not change the printer name, unless you do not have administrator rights. The name of the printer has nothing to do with where the print copy is sent. It is just for the purpose you mentioned of identifying the printer to print to. If you are not the administrator, ask your IT folks to change the name for you and explain why.

  • Print Preview is missing from Firefox 6 on Mac OSX Lion in both File Menu and Print Dialog Box

    The question says it all really. Print Preview option is missing from both the File menu and from the Print dialog box when you select Print. I use Print Preview a lot to avoid wasting paper.
    A relevant issue might be that the Mac OSX app Preview is currently having trouble with various printers including my Xerox and so, temporarily, the default application for all Preview items is now Adobe Reader until Apple get their act together. Perhaps this is affecting things?
    Thanks for any help

  • CS6 Photoshop: One newly-created PSD filewon't print because the print dialog box won't appear altho the file properties appear to be the same as other files that do print.

    CS6 Photoshop: One newly-created PSD file won't print because the print dialog box won't appear after selecting File > Print.  Then "Print" becomes grayed out. The file properties such as permissions, are the same as other PSD files that do print.  This file also cannot be converted to Adobe PDF, which is not offered as choice under "Save as", whereas other can be.  I've exited, reopened Photoshop, restarted computer, checked out other CS6 PSD files which do print, nothing changes.  The 52 MB file has been flattened. OS is Windows 7.  Thanks for any suggestions.

    Sounds like the printer driver is having some problems.
    Try holding the space bar down when you select Print (which makes the print dialog NOT load previously used settings).

  • Where do I find the printer dialog box to change the setting that asks me to save a file before printing

    Where do I find the printer dialog box to change the setting that asks me to save a file before printing

    Hi Sara,
    The problem is every time I try to copy a page from a website or attachment sent to me or anything that I don't create, the dialog box says I have to save it before I can print -- there are no other options on the dialog box.  Very frustrating -- one of the girls in my office is having the same problem and we can't find a way around it.
    Hope you can help
    Thanks

  • PSE 10 - Print Dialog box - Preview shows incorrect file

    PSE 10 - Print Dialog box - Preview shows incorrect file.  Preview shows an open, but minimized file, however, it does not show the active, open file that I want to print.  Rather than have to go through the organizer to choose the correct file and delete the incorrect file, how can I make sure that the targeted file I want to print appears in the Print dialog preview window and actually prints?

    Thanks, Barbara.  I've used PSE for years and never knew this.  Such an easy solution.  Thanks for quick response!

    and i enter default output device 'PDEST'
    where do i give this?
    and also, after this, i need to do a 'Print Preview' action and see if file is opening up.
    Can i automate these actions?
    I am using:
    rspar_line-selname = 'SFPOUTPAR-DEST'. // the output device parameter name
    rspar_line-kind = 'S'.
    rspar_line-sign = 'I'.
    rspar_line-option = 'EQ'.

    How do i proceed?

  • Printer dialog box does not appear in Photoshop CS.5

    I use Photoshop CS.5.1 with a Macbook 2013 using version 10.9.5. The printer works perfectly with all other applications but in Photoshop no printer dialog box comes up and the print job does not appear in the printers queue. Anyone the same issues?

    First, try nuking (deleting them and letting the application create new ones) your Photoshop preferences:
    To re-create the preferences files for Photoshop, start the application while holding down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS). Then, click Yes to the message, "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?"
    Note: If this process doesn't work for you while you're using a wireless (Bluetooth) keyboard, attach a wired keyboard and retry.
    Important: If you re-create the preferences by deleting the Adobe Photoshop CS6 Settings file, make sure that you only delete that file. If you delete the entire settings folder, you also delete any unsaved actions or presets.
    Reinstalling Photoshop does not remove the preferences file. Before reinstalling Photoshop, re-create your preferences.
    NEW Video! Julieanne Kost created a video that takes you through two ways of resetting your Photoshop preferences. The manual preference file removal method is between 0:00 - 5:05. The keyboard shortcut method is between 5:05 - 8:18. The video is located here.
    Mac OS
    Important: Apple made the user library folder hidden by default with the release of Mac OS X 10.7. If  you require access to files in the hidden library folder to perform Adobe-related troubleshooting, see How to access hidden user library files.
