User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20060202 Fedora/1.0.7-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
On a freshly installed FC5T3 I tried to setup an HP LaserJet 5M generic PostScript printer via JetDirect. I named the print queue HP_LJ5M_PS. When trying to print any test page the display on the printer shortly display "Getting data" and then nothing happens, i.e. no page is printed. I remember having reported this problem back for nearly every FC release, then it got fixed but now it's back again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup a PostScript print queue via JetDirect to a HP LaserJet 5M

How about if you set the 'Ghostscript Pre-Filtering' option to different values?
Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2006-02-23 12:15:37 EST
I've tried all four available options but none of them works.
Comment 3 Aaron Holtzman 2006-03-11 09:57:05 EST
I've had my Laserjet 5M broken since FC4 as well. Today I managed to get it to work by switching the drier 
to hpijs from Postscript (whatever that means).

The recommended driver for this device has been changed to PostScript.
