Description Levente Farkas 2001-03-30 12:42:54 UTC
I'm just download tha latest rawhide rpms LPRng and remove all printer
than try to add as new a HP 5M lasetjet on jetdirect port. but it's not
able to print in postscript just in ascii:-(((
the reason why I realy waiting for a better printconf since wolvorine
because I wanna print 2 pages to one page (NUP=2), but now even one page
do not working:-(

the requested file

Comment 3 Levente Farkas 2001-04-03 10:39:00 UTC
huu, it's more serious. if I try to print any postcript than it's crash
the printer!!! this means the printer drop it's ethernet interface and
it have to be reconfigure on console (it's not possible even with jetdirect).
this problem not exist when I print from windows:-(((

It's been a while since there was any activity on this bug, unfortunately.  
Are you still experiencing this same problem?

When you tried to attach /etc/alchemist/namespace/printconf/local.adl last 
time it didn't work for some reason.  Could you try again please?  Thanks.

Which packages are you now using?

Comment 5 Levente Farkas 2001-12-19 13:00:01 UTC
simply I forget about LPRng and thwe whole dozen of perl packages, alchemist
etc... it's too difficult, too complex and these kind of thing are very rare
getting good. I simple switch to cups. I have to install only ONE package and
can remove many dozen of rpms which are required by LPRng. what's more now I'm
able to print two pages into one sheet, which I cant do with LPRng (may be 
possible but I cant do it).
IMHO it'd be better to start to support cups by RH:-)

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2001-12-19 13:04:09 UTC
Well, maybe, but okay I'll close this bug report then.

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2004-11-02 17:40:06 UTC
(cups now ships in Fedora Core)
