Description Trevor Antczak 2001-05-26 00:25:54 EDT

Description of problem:
Installed my Canon BJC 3000 on Red hat 7.1 (Seawolf), and I am having
problems getting ascii to print.  It works neither from the command line
nor from the "ascii print test".  Noting that there is already a bug report
with a similar problem I followed the given advice (install the lastest
verison of printconf), but I already have the latest version, so that's not
the problem.  The text line in /var/spool/lpd/$printername/mf.cfg says
"define(TEXTfilter, text "" \r\n\14 )dnl", and "rpm -q printconf" gives
"printconf-0.2.12-1". Lpd believes it printed the page. "lpq -L" gives:

 Status: finished 'root@merlin+503', status 'JSUCC' at 23:25:58.256
 Status: subserver pid 1505 exit status 'JSUCC' at 23:25:58.257
 Status: canon@merlin.feyknight.com: job 'cfA503merlin.feyknight.com'
printed at 23:25:58.264
 Status: job 'cfA503merlin.feyknight.com' removed at 23:25:58.319

Any advice?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to print ascii text (eg "lpr /etc/hosts")
2.It doesn't do anything (but lpd thinks it printed)

Actual Results:  Nothing.  lpq -L gives results shown above.

Expected Results:  Printed page.
