Description Craig Kelley 2001-03-18 22:17:33 UTC
Printing ASCII worked just fine on my PCL-speaking LaserJet 4L under RedHat 6.2, but it no longer works with Wolverine (I skipped 7.0, so I'm not sure if it works with that). Printing PostScript works just fine, but printing ASCII just results in the printer's lights blinking a few times and then nothing. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: lpr /etc/hosts Actual Results: Printer light blinks a few times. Expected Results: Printer should print a test page The printer is listed by name (LaserJet 4L), but it doesn't work.

I forgot to mention that the ASCII test page in printconf doesn't work either, but the PostScript test page works just fine.
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-03-19 20:20:24 UTC
fixed, right crutcher?
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-03-19 20:28:14 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2001-03-20 12:16:01 UTC
Please try the latest kernel from rawhide as well as the latest packages from http://people.redhat.com/crutcher/printing and let us know if the problem is fixed. Thanks.
Comment 5 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-03-20 20:54:20 UTC
Please tell me what version of printconf you are using: rpm -q printconf and attach the file: /var/spool/lpd/?SPOOLNAME?/mf.cfg to this bug. If that file contains a line that says: define(TEXTfilter, text "" \r\n\14 )dnl than we have a real bug. If, on the other hand, it contains a line that says: define(TEXTfilter, text)dnl or define(TEXTfilter, text "" \14 )dnl then this is already fixed in the latest/greatest. You can try those out by pulling them from: http://people.redhat.com/crutcher/printing/
Comment 6 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-03-20 22:56:56 UTC
I tried this on HP 4M, I think this is fixed. Reopen if it doesn't work with the latest packages. I'm pretty sure it's a form feed issue.

Comment 8 Craig Kelley 2001-03-23 21:30:55 UTC
After updating to the packages listed: $ rpm -q printconf printconf-0.2.7-1 Now I cannot select any printers and my current printer is "invalid". I did an 'rpm -Fvh *rpm' to all the .i386.rpm files listed at http://people.redhat.com/crutcher/printing I'm leaving the bug as resolved, but it still doesn't work.
