print big file or multi page very slow

Post by Effort »

I used Turboprint for Linux,When I use it to print documents with
big files or multi page, the printing speed is very slow. Do you have any solutions?
Look forward to your reply :D :D :D

Hello,

printing speed depends on several factors like

- the printer
- the selected print quality
- the complexity of the document: High resolution images, detailed illustrations and large PDF files take longer to print. Usually, printing time increases with document size.
- it is also relevant from which application you are printing
- your computer is also a factor (CPU speed)

Is the printer slow but constantly busy (print head moving) or is it making pauses - before print starts and/or between print head scans?

For investigation you can send the TurboPrint log file /var/log/turboprint/print.log and a sample document.

First of all, thank you for your reply
I'm use turboprint for Linux 2.45,raspberry 3b+,

Sample document download url: http://vr.ccczg.site/70.pdf

It's printing very slow.
My printer only supports 300x300 pixels and 600x600 pixels. The default is 600x600 pixels.
I tried to print with 300x300 pixels. It's faster, but it's blurry. I need 600x600 pixels to print.What can I do for you?
The printed log is attached
Thank you
