Suppressing Ghostscript text output when opening PDFs

Postby zoosy » Tue Jul 11, 2017 3:09 pm

Hi all,

I'm converting some PDFs to binary PNG using NConvert in Linux (CentOS 6.8 x64 / NConvert v6.88 / GS v8.70).
On every run, I get the help from ghostscript in the output (even if -quiet mode is enabled in NConvert... seems that it is not passing -quiet to ghostscript too):

/opt/nconvert/nconvert -quiet -xall -dpi 300 -binary floyd -out png -o 0000-####.png 0000.pdf
where 0000.pdf is a 30 page PDF file

The output looks like this:

Code: Select all

/opt/nconvert/nconvert -quiet -xall -dpi 300 -binary floyd -out png -o 0000-####.png 0000.pdf

... and so on.

My question is: How can I suppress the ghostscript help?
It's bugging me because it's very hard to check the NConvert output.
It should look like this:

Code: Select all

/opt/nconvert/nconvert -quiet -xall -dpi 300 -binary floyd -out png -o 0000-####.png 0000.pdf

Re: Suppressing Ghostscript text output when opening PDFs

Although Pierre as the program designer is probably the only person who can comment on or implement a solution for the root cause of the verbose Ghostscript output you report, the following observation may be of some use:

There seemed to be a sudden increase in the text displayed possibly around two years or so ago; whether that was due to a change in Ghostscript itself, or possibly but probably less likely, a change in NConvert, I don't know.

In the absence of an early solution from Pierre, you might therefore try testing earlier versions of Ghostscript, and if necessary also earlier versions of NConvert provided all the options you need are supported...

Right, it will be removed
