Description Emmanuel Galanos 2000-08-16 07:46:47 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).
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-08-16 13:26:21 EDT
needs investigating asap.
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2000-08-16 17:35:19 EDT
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold release
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2000-08-17 12:43:51 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2000-08-17 13:04:36 EDT
Should be fixed in rhs-printfilters-1.79-2.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2000-08-18 04:30:26 EDT
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.
Comment 6 Emmanuel Galanos 2000-08-19 22:35:03 EDT
My printer is a BJ-200ex. I used the filter that contains the BJ-200 model.
