pstops problem with 1.2
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
Although ethereal showed data was transfered between cups and the lpd printer (a
Lexmark Optra E310, connected by a Hawking TCP-to-printerport) nothing gets printed.
Reverting back to cups-1.1 resolves this issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. With a working 1.1, yum update 1.2
2. Printing no longer works
No flashing of the printers LEDs
Files being printed.
Surprisingly, the printer test page work, but I can't get my files to print.
Please adjust /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and change the 'LogLevel' line to read:
Then stop cupsd, clear out the error log, and restart it:
/sbin/service cups stop
/sbin/service cups start
Send your job again, and then please attach the /var/log/cups/error_log file.

The actual transfer seems to go without problems. I'm beginning to suspect the
pstops filter changes are to blame.
How about if you try printing your job like this?:
lpr -oraw ...
That way you bypass the pstops filter.
Yes, the file prints correctly when I do a "lpr -oraw ..."
Please could you attach the original document? Thanks.
Oh, I'd also still like to see the error_log file when 'LogLevel debug2' is in
I have put 1.2-0.2.rc1.7, which contains a change that might fix this, here:
Please try it out and let me know if it changes anything.

File I'm having trouble printing. It prints 6 blank sudoku boards.

Yes, 1.2-0.2.rc1.7 does work. The file printed successfully. You you want the
debug2 logging from that run?
No need. Thanks.
