Description Gerald Teschl 2001-11-13 08:46:16 EST
I tried to setup a hp lj 5l with printconf-gui. It dedected
the printer and I choose the default driver. But when
I tried to print a test page nothing happend. I searched all the
logs, debugged the perl scripts and eventually found out
that the config file "lj4dith-62720.foo" has a line

  'cmd' => ''

instead of the proper gs commandline and hence lpdomatic failes
"Cannot exec: ".

Next I tried to set it up as lj 4. Now the system produces some gs errors:

IF filter 'mf_wrapper' filter msg - 'cat: write error: Broken pipe' at
2001-11-13-14:33:14.634 ## A=root@ws10+376 number=376 process=8378
IF filter 'mf_wrapper' filter msg - 'Error: /ioerror in --.outputpage--' at

I forgot to metion
1) printconf-0.3.52-1, ghostscript-6.51-16
2) These are the errors in /var/spool/lpd/lp/status.lp when printing the
a4-ps test page
Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2001-11-13 09:03:41 EST
The omni driver seems to work (at least the test page is printed).
Comment 3 Gerald Teschl 2001-11-14 12:03:01 EST
Same problem with HP LJ1100: lj4 produces gs errors, omni works.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 36720 ***
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2002-01-23 11:48:26 EST
Oh, this is with 7.2, but #36720 is with 7.1.  Looks like a different bug after
all.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2002-01-23 11:49:08 EST
Do the packages at <ftp://people.redhat.com/twaugh/errata-candidate/> help?
Comment 7 Gerald Teschl 2002-02-12 09:07:39 EST
Yes, the errate fixes the problem.
