Description Robert M. Riches Jr. 2001-09-20 14:51:55 EDT
Description of Problem:
The drivers/filters/etc. for the Epson Stylus Photo 870
printer does not handle postscript, nor does it allow
gimp-print to successfully print.  (With RedHat 7.0,
gimp-print was working, but nothing else was supported.)
From printconf-gui, the ASCII test page prints fine.  The
postscript page eventually results in lpq giving a JREMOVE
message.  With gimp-print, the job sits in the queue for a
minute or so then is gone as if it had printed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use printconf-gui to configure the queue.
2. Try to print the Postscript test page.
3. Try to print using gimp-print.

Actual Results:
The printconf-gui postscript test page eventually results
in a JREMOVE message from lpq.  Gimp-print eventually
results in the job simply exiting the queue.

Expected Results:
The printer should print the page or image.

Additional Information:
I'll attach /etc/printcap.

I stand corrected.  The gremlins are now allowing gimp-print
to print to the printer.  However, postscript still does not

Do you think that this might be the same as bug #54913 at all?
Comment 4 Robert M. Riches Jr. 2002-01-09 15:05:43 EST
I don't know.  Present symptoms are that gimp-print works fine,
and printtool's ASCII test page prints fine, but printtool's
postscript test page sits in the queue for a while and then

Okay, it looks the same to me.
