Hi, Im'not sure if this is the right place or a different bug should be opened.

I have a problem with HP Laserjet 1005 in FC3. It used to work, now it's not
printing anything. foomatic is version 3.0.2-13.4    
Other packages: Omni 0.9.2-1.1, cups 1.1.22-0.rc1.8.5, ghostscript 7.07-33

This is some of the cups error_log:

Thanks a lot.

Please attach the output of 'printconf-tui --Xexport', and let me know which
printer you are printing to.  Thanks.

I'm printing to the Laserjet 1005, it's the only printer in the system, and the
exact name given is 'HP_Laserjet_1005'.

Some additional info: 
I'm doing this in the cups init script:
cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1005.dl > /dev/lp0 (it's the same firmware
i've using before, and the printer works OK in other non-unix OS.)

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2005-04-25 13:13:10 UTC
How about if you re-install foo2zjs?  I think this is another instance of bug
#118983, made worse by a recent foomatic change (which has now been reverted

Comment 6 Fernando Fernandez Pedraza 2005-05-29 17:35:15 UTC
Problem solved by re-installing foo2zjs. 

Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 21:30:27 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
