UTF-8 encoded file printing wierd characters for Ukranian data using lpr command RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a multilingual(Ukranian) data with other PCL syntax in my notepad which I have saved in UTF-8 encoding format.
    When I tried to print it using windows prints it prints out file with ukranian language data.
    But When I tried to print it using lpr command, garbage characters are printed on the page for the specific ukranian characters. I am using HP printer to print the file.

    My lpr command is
    lpr -S Server'sIp PrinterName filename

    I have also tried adding document-format=text/utf8 to the command but still no luck.
    Could anyone please help me out as to what setting I need to do or how we can associate PCL commands with lpr command for UTF-8 encoding file format.
