Description of problem:
I cannot print PDF file on my Epsom ML-1600 printer
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.print a PDF file
Error on printer
Created attachment 309356 [details]
Test PDF file
> Error on printer
Please be much more descriptive than this. What error? Is there an error
message, an error code? Does anything print?
I'm confused about which model of printer it is. Epson doesn't make a model
called 'ML-1600' as far as I'm aware, but Samsung does.
It would help if you try troubleshooting this problem yourself first by
selecting System->Administration->Printing from the main menu, then
Help->Troubleshoot from the menu in the printer configuration tool. This will
check for simple problems and gather information for further diagnosis -- attach
the troubleshoot.txt file as an attachment to this bug report.

1) Printer is Samsung
2) It works fine on regular documents, but on this one and similar when I print,
lights on printer turn from green to flashing red, and if I go to see the queue
document remains in progress.
3) I could print on same printer connected to Fedora from a networked Vista laptop
Please attach /etc/cups/ppd/ML-1610.ppd.

ML-1610 ppd file
Please note that if I say that I want 300 dpi in config-system-printer I cannot
print the test page, I have to use the 600 dpi option
But does setting the resolution to 300dpi allow this particular document to be
printed? In other words, does this work?
lp -oResolution=300x300dpi -dML-1610 dann01.pdf

Output of line command
it is exactly what I get either from command line or system-config-printer.
Sorry dor the delay
Situation is very bad, now I can't print from any application in rawhide (Gimp, Openoffice, Adobe...)
I do not see any improvement in printing, shall I sell my SAMSUNG and switch to a HP laser printer :-( ????.
And I notice that the only available driver is gdi.
The only other choice you have for this printer is to use the splix driver. Unfortunately we are not able to ship this driver in Fedora due to patent issues.
I will try the splix driver, that in F7 was going to be packaged...and it was included in the available driver list.
