Usage notes:

  • If the AFP resource path job property contains a value, and the assigned printer for the job also specifies resource paths through its AFP resource path printer property, Ricoh ProcessDirector first searches for resources in the paths that are specified on the job property and then searches in the paths specified by the printer property.
  • All Ricoh ProcessDirector components, such as the line2afp data-conversion component, the printer driver component, and the viewer, search for resources in this order:
    1. Inline in the data stream
    2. In the directories that the AFP resource path job property specifies
    3. If the print step requests a resource, in the directories that the AFP resource path printer property specifies
    4. In AIX and Linux:
      • In the /aiw/aiw1/resources directory
      • In the /usr/lpp/psf/reslib directory
    5. In Windows:
      • In the c:\aiw\aiw1\resources directory
      • In the \reslib directory in the PSF install path The default install path is c:\Program Files (x86)\InfoPrint\PSF
  • The Ricoh ProcessDirector group (aiwgrp1 is the default) and the Ricoh ProcessDirector system user (aiw1 is the default) must have read permission for all directories in the resource path.
  • When this property is associated with a job that is processed by the Advanced Transform Feature, it is only used when the transform input stream is AFP.
