Declaration [src]

gtk_print_job_set_source_fd (
  GtkPrintJob* job,
  int fd,
  GError** error

Description [src]

Make the GtkPrintJob send an existing document to the printing system.

The file can be in any format understood by the platforms printing system (typically PostScript, but on many platforms PDF may work too). See gtk_printer_accepts_pdf() and gtk_printer_accepts_ps().

This is similar to gtk_print_job_set_source_file(), but takes expects an open file descriptor for the file, instead of a filename.



Type: int

A file descriptor.


Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will be left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gboolean

FALSE if an error occurred.
