Description Chris Moller 2007-09-21 12:07:25 EDT
Description of problem:

"lpr -P claser spiral-long.ps" where claser is a locally attached Postscript
printer and "spiral-long.ps" is a little bit of Postscript just prints the
contents of the Postscript file verbatim rather than printing the results of
rendering the Postscript.

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

cups-1.3.0-1.fc8


How reproducible:

100%


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  lpr -P claser spiral-long.ps
2.
3.
  
Actual results:

A single printed sheet containing the contents of the spiral-long.ps file.


Expected results:

A sheet containing the results of rendering the contents of the file as Postscript.

Additional info:

FWIW, I've attached spiral-long.ps, but I expect any simple PS will do.  The
printer works fine in all other ways.  E.g., "lpr -P claser something.pdf" does
the right thing, as does printing from within all the apps (like firefox) I've
tried.

Attached file is not a PostScript file.  Valid Adobe PostScript files begin with
a line like:

%!PS-Adobe-3.0
