How to quickly and effectively setup an E-Business Suite (EBS) for generating and/or printing concurrent programs registered with the Postscript output format and the IX Library option.

Note 1:    As per <Note 189708.1> Oracle Reports 6i Setup Guide for Oracle Applications 11i, IX Library (IX_PRINTING) is required in a UTF8 character set EBS environment, however. Unless there's a need to subset a particular custom true type font, enabling IX Library on non-UTF8 instances (e.g.US7ASCII, WE8ISO8859P1, WE8MSWIN1252, etc) does not server any purpose or adds any additional benefits for generating reports in the Postscript format.

Presently, many applications and printers do not fully support the Unicode (UTF8) character set; therefore, it is essential to use IX Library to utilize a Unicode compliant true type font that supports the Unicode (UTF8) character set.

These concepts and setup steps are also applicable to EBS Release 12.x
