Whenever I send a job to the printer, I get a blank page at the end and a
stack dump at the printer. This happens with RC3 (qa0401). I am seeing it
both at work, where I spool jobs to an NT4 Server (DEClaser 5100, aka LN09)
and at home, where I am printing to an HP LaserJet 4L. The error
information at work is
error name: dictstackunderflow
errorinfo: errorinfo not displayable
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lpr -P:lp0 <file>
Actual Results: entire file printed, followed by blank page, followed by
Expected Results: entire file printed
What does the stack dump look like?
Are sure you mean 'lpr -P:lp0' and not 'lpr -Plp0'?
Can you attach the file out produced by:
zcat /etc/alchemist/namespace/printconf/local.adl > out
(Youll need to be root to run the above command.)
Since submitting the bug, I have done further research. The bug is not in
LPRng, but in Kwrite, and has already been reported (several times) to KDEbugs.
KDE bug numbers are 15982, 22899, 14304. I was also wrong about the syntax of
the lpr command: after hastily submitting the bug report, I tried printing the
buffer (in Kwrite) to a file instead of a printer. When I tried converting the
file from Postscript to PDF using ps2pdf, I also got the same stack dump as
reported in #15982 above.
I'll try to be more careful next time...
It's fixed in current release
