Description Vasile Gaburici 2008-08-03 12:20:23 UTC
My non-postscript HP LaserJet 6P started getting fed raw postscript in economy mode (300dpi, draft) after the automated update of cups on Jul 10. The 600dpi non-economy mode still works properly, i.e. postscript gets translated to pcl5 before being fed to it.

I tried deleting an recreating the printer profile, but this had no effect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups-1.3.7-8.fc9

Please try running the printing troubleshooter: System->Administration->Printing from the main menu, then Help->Troubleshoot from the menu bar.

It will ask you to print a test page -- do this in the same way as you are currently printing and seeing the incorrect output.

Please attach the resulting troubleshoot.txt file to this bug report.  Thanks.

Troubleshoot text.

I had already done that. Even the test page comes out as raw postscript (that is a few postscript strings followed by many blank pages) in econo mode. I'm attaching the troubleshoot text.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2008-08-03 13:54:51 UTC
Please attach /etc/cups/ppd/HP-LaserJet-6Pecon.ppd.

PPD

Could the problem be that there are square brackets in the file name?

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2008-08-04 08:33:03 UTC
Looks like it, yes:

'D [02/Aug/2008:23:35:26 +0300] [Job 16] PPD file: /etc/cups/ppd/HP-LaserJet-6Pecon.ppd',

This is a foomatic bug then.

Confirmed. I deleted the profile with brackets in the name and created one without brackets; economy mode works now. I changed to priority to low since this is easy to work around.
