Description Sylvain Rouillard 2005-06-24 04:43:02 EDT
Description of problem:
I have FC4T2 installed, which is 'yum updated' daily. I use a HP Laserjet 6P
Printer that is hooked on a windows computer. I print on it through a router,
samba style.
A couple of days ago, I made a test print, printing just the word 'test' with
both KEdit and OOo-writer, just to see if I could print (see
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2005-June/msg00992.html), and
didn't notice anything wrong at that time. I therefor assume that the problem
appeared after yesterday update.
The actual problem is that printing a text with OOo-writer renders scrumbled
letters, a bit like what I would get on a dusty deskjet printer. However, this
has nothing to do with the printer, every character is rendered consistantly the
same wrong way for each font I tried, both from OOo-writer or from PDF exported
files with OOo-writer (printed through XPDF). Printing from the other windows
box is ok, printing from KEdit is OK.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q hpijs

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print with OOo-writer
2. Go to the printer
3. Look at the result
Actual results:
Mis-formed characters

Expected results:
awsome printing

1. Does this still happen with 0.9.4?  (Which exact hpijs package do you have now?)

2. What does 'rpm -q ghostscript' say?

Closing due to lack of response by reporter.
