Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30814
setup of HP682c produces nasty output
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
After going through the steps to *properly* set up my networked HP 682c
with printconfig-gui, the output from print jobs is a horrible mess of a
squished version of the proper black text with random letters missing, and
a squished blue version of the text a quarter character to the left of the
black text so that the blue and black versions overlap. Some of the missing
black letters are there in the blue version.
Printer setup with same hardware/ network with 7.0 was pretty painless and
worked properly :)
Printer: HP 682C
hung off of SMC Barricade 7004BR
Printer chosen in printconf: DeskJet 682C
Driver as chosen by printconf: cdj670
Queue Type: lpd spool
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Can you try reverting to the old rhs-printfilters/printtool and see if this
still happens there?
Also, you could try different drivers for this.
It sounds like either the ghostscript driver is insane, or you are experiencing
could you try the latest rpms from:
using the latest rpms made a world of difference
text and postscript files look beautiful.
It even solved a problem with the first page not loading on a print job
which I had previously attributed to user error.
