Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18715
LPRng won't print this page
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:06 EDT
I've tried printing this page with RedHat 6.2 and it work great, but LPRng
does not print it (see the attached URL). I'm sending it to a PostScript
printer (using the *auto* PostScript filter installed by default). The
machine in question has been upgraded from RedHat 6.2 and I am using the
Netscape installed with 7.0 to send it over. I'm not sure if the problem
is with Netscape, but it does work from a 6.2 box.
Please re-attach the file, It is not here

Postscript output of Netscape, which lprng fails to print on a lpd-enabled HP Laserjet 8000 printer
ooh, this is goofy.
I cannot find ANY way to get content out of this file.
postscript printers dont understand it raw,
ghostscript uses ps2ps to convert it to almost nothing,
and ghostview displays it as blank.
I looks like the postscript page source is either A) Buggy, or B) Technically
correct, but had tweaked in ways that no one actually supports.
If you can get anything to view/print this postscript file, reopen this bug with
the info, meanwhile, I am gonna close as wontfix
