upgrade breaks printing
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
Upgrading from 6.1. Cannon bubble jet printer on lp0.
The existing files in /var/spool/lpd/lp/ break with the upgraded
printfilters. Garbage comes out of the printer.
Using printtool to add the printer again fixes the problem (after deleting
old entry and adding new entry).
needs investigating asap.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold release
I am seeing a problem with upgrading rhs-printfilters from 6.1 to RC1, but it
doesn't result in garbage; rather, no printer activity at all.
It is caused by rewindstdin no longer being in the rhs-printfilters package.
Should be fixed in rhs-printfilters-1.79-2.
Just to check that this has fixed the problem: what exact model of printer did
you use, and what input filter? I am using a BJC-210.
My printer is a BJ-200ex. I used the filter that contains the BJ-200 model.
