Bypassing PDF to PS Conversion (Printing PDF Files Directly)

Required Steps: 

To bypass the PDF to PS conversion you can print the file in raw mode from the command line.  Follow these simple steps:

1.  First you will need to acquire the printer queue name by going to the localhost website.
2.  Once there scroll down, find your printer, and copy the name next to the "Description" field.
3.  Then open a terminal window and run the following commands:

lpr -o raw -Pprinter_queue_name filename.pdf

Where printer_queue_name is the name of the printer queue you copied from localhost and filename is the path to the file you would like to print.
