From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
Good: Configured my Samba connected HP932C with printconf-gui tool.  Good: 
Tested text print and it worked fine. 
Bad: Used enscript and the printer started printing pages of garbage.  
Bad: I tried all 4 GS drivers cdj550, cdj880, hpdj and stpr ( stpr blew up 
and spit out a dump). 
Good: I then manually created the enscript ps file, fed that into gs and 
then used smbclient to print the file, that worked.  I tried both cdj550 
and cdj880, they both worked fine when the printconf stuff was by-passed.  
Bad: I was running Red Hat 7.0 and upgraded it to 7.1.  
Good: I didn't have any problems printing or using enscript under 7.0.  
Bad: This all started with 7.1.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.enscript fn

Actual Results:  Printer spit out pages of garbage

Expected Results:  File printed on the printer

Additional info:

Upgraded from Red Hat 7.0 to Red Hat 7.1
Verified that Gostscript will process the postscript file correctly when 
removing printconf from the process.
1) Created a ps file using enscript
2) Converted for printing using gs
3) Printed the file successfully using smbclient print command

Does this problem still happen now, or did it get solved?

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-01-12 16:03:22 UTC
Yes 6 months later, nothing has been solved.  I supplied some information 
several months ago but am still waiting for a FIX!
