GDI-skrivare?


Trevlig

Recommended Posts

Det stod i ett meddelande: "Brother HL-1430 och Brother HL-5130 är GDI-skrivare och går inte att använda i DOS."

 

Vad menas med det? Kan någon förklara? Och när använder man en skrivare i DOS?

 

Jag har Windows Xp Home.

 

Internet Explorer.

 

Microsoft Word.

 

Kan jag använda ovan nämnda laserskrivare?

GDI printer Last modified: Thursday, August 30, 2001

 

 

 

A printer that has built-in support for Windows Graphical Device Interface (GDI). GDI is used by most Windows applications to display images on a monitor, so when printing from a Windows application to a GDI printer, there is no need to convert the output to another format such as PostScript or PCL.

GDI printers are sometimes called host-based printers because they rely on the host computer to rasterize pages.

DOS Last modified: Friday, December 14, 2001

 

 

 

(1) Acronym for disk operating system. The term DOS can refer to any operating system, but it is most often used as a shorthand for MS-DOS (Microsoft disk operating system). Originally developed by Microsoft for IBM, MS-DOS was the standard operating system for IBM-compatible personal computers.

The initial versions of DOS were very simple and resembled another operating system called CP/M. Subsequent versions have became increasingly sophisticated as they incorporated features of minicomputer operating systems. However, DOS is still a 16-bit operating system and does not support multiple users or multitasking.

 

For some time, it has been widely acknowledged that DOS is insufficient for modern computer applications. Microsoft Windows helped alleviate some problems, but still, it sat on top of DOS and relied on DOS for many services. Even Windows 95 sat on top of DOS. Newer operating systems, such as Windows NT and OS/2 Warp, do not rely on DOS to the same extent, although they can execute DOS-based programs. It is expected that as these operating systems gain market share, DOS will eventually disappear. In the meantime, Caldera, Inc. markets a version of DOS called DR-OpenDOS that extends MS-DOS in significant ways.

Ja, du kan använda den till din dator. Det är just den kombinationen denna skrivare är avsedd för.

Du kan däremot inte använda den till en Linuxdator eller Mac om du inte installerar diverse speciallösningar.

För att fylla på ett utmärkt svar kan jag tala om att GDI-skrivare sällan fungerar bra i nätverk, utan skall helst anslutas direkt till dator.

Jag har en GDI-skrivare NEC 660+, någon som har ett tips på hur man kan använda den i Windows XP?

Det finns inga drivrutiner.
