Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53882
Epson Stylus Photo 870 driver/filter, no postscript
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:16 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):
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.
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.
The printer should print the page or image.
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?
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.
