ghostscript fails with "rangecheck in .putdeviceprops" after installing eqpcl patch


Title: ghostscript fails with "rangecheck in .putdeviceprops" after installing eqpcl patch
Document: 1471275880
Keywords: eqpcl,rangecheck

Q: After installing the latest Eloquence Patch for eqpcl i now have a problem. At every print command it says "rangecheck in .putdeviceprops" and the output-pdf file is broken. I'm using ghostscript 8.15.

A: eqpcl versions as of patch PE82-1507060 uses color profiles to improve color conversions. Unfortunately, this seems to trigger a defect in older Ghostscript versions.

As a workaround, the eqpcl configuration may be modified to use eqpcl with older Ghostscript.

Please specify the gs.pdf.opt option in the eqpcl.cfg config file under the gs custom options comment.

  gs.pdf.opt = -dPDFSETTINGS=/printer -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4

For Ghostscript 8.62 and newer the gs.pdf.opt option should be changed to add the UseCIEColor option.

  gs.pdf.opt = -dPDFSETTINGS=/printer -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dUseCIEColor=true
Otherwise ghostscript will emit the following warning:
Set UseCIEColor for UseDeviceIndependentColor to work properly.
