Projects / foo2lava


foo2lava is a driver for printers that use the Zenographics LAVAFLOW wire protocol for their print data, such as the Konica Minolta magicolor 2530 DL or the Konica Minolta magicolor 2490 MF. These printers are often erroneously referred to as winprinters or GDI printers. In fact, LAVAFLOW printers are raster printers that happen to use a very efficient wire protocol that was developed by Zenographics and licensed by most major printer manufacturers for at least some of their product lines. LAVAFLOW is just one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc.
