Description Jef Spaleta 2004-09-08 23:55:29 UTC
Description of problem:
printer: hp 3650 using hpijs 
default gimp setting: lp -s -dprinter -oraw
asking gimp to print, the printjob spools up
i see it as active in lpq
but no output is printed

I remove the -oraw  from the gimp settings and gimp prints
as expected.  Not a huge deal really, and if -oraw is there to prevent
some printers from spitting out pages and pages of garbage then its
quite reasonable to add it by default. I'm just reporting this as
breakage since gimp under fc2 did not behave this way for me and I
didnt see any other bugs about this in my braindead bugzilla search.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open an image in gimp 
2. select print from the file menu
3. print
4. lpq to check the job status is active
5. wait
6. lpq and the job is no longer spooled and no printer output 
7. remove -oraw and repeat 1-7 and get printer output

Actual results:
no printer output with default settings

Expected results:
a nice full color picture of me, shirtless, eating my 5th plate of
all-you-can-eat chicken wings, without having to change the default
gimp printer settings.

Probably rather a gimp-print problem:

nils@gibraltar:~> strings /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/print | grep oraw
lp -s -d%s -oraw
Enter the correct command to print to your printer. Note: Please do
not remove the `-l' or `-oraw' from the command string, or printing
will probably fail!
