Description of problem:
I'm using the hplip and cups daemons that start at boot.
I have a usb hp printer that I turn on when I want to print something.
Unless the printer has finished turning on by the time I click print, I get nothing printed, i.e. the print spool doesn't seem to work at all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Need version numbers of the packages. rpm -q cups hplip
2. Did it work before you installed hplip?
$ rpm -q cups hplip
I don't know whether it worked before I installed hplip.
This is an FC4 bug, don't think it will be fixed.
Are you still using FC4 or have you upgraded since reporting this?
I upgraded to FC5 and FC6 (two boxes).
Do you still see the problem on FC5 or FC6?
Come to think of it, I have seen it at least once on FC6 (the printer is
normally on), I will reopen the bug and close it if I can't reproduce it.
One command that does not work though is this:
cat file.txt | lpr
I'll also re-test that.
Nope, both work.
