Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1492
lpr and mpage give different results when printing same file
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
I am creating primt files which I print with mpage. I
noticed that the last line is not printed. I then printed
the same file with lpr and noticed that the first line is
missing but the last line is there. I would like to send
the print file to you (quite small) so you can see for
In addition, mpage does not allow the automatic removal of
print files and lpr is missing many of the features of unix
lp (-c options) which limits the printing of files to
printers like lazerjets.
Could you please add the printfile to this bug using
e-mail so that we can reproduce the problem? Thanks

Here's the bug I mentioned...
I get identical results with the testfile here; the last
line is chopped off both with mpage & lpr, because there's no
newline at the end of the test file.
What specific options is lpr missing?
no real bug here.
