Generate HPGL code

HPGL can be generated with the nightly build of inkscape (or 0.91 once it is released) (the one in the current version sucks, and only allows an A4 to be plot).

In inkscape

  1. Convert everything to paths, other things will be ignored
  2. Go to file -- save as, and select HPGL
  3. Make sure center zero is selected, other settings will be here later.

Send the HPGL file to the plotter

use this command

cat yourfile.hpgl > /dev/lp0

MORE INFO WILL BE ADDED
