Description Mike Iglesias 2002-09-15 05:56:40 UTC

Description of problem:
I have a HP DeskJet 870Cxi printer connected to a system running RH 7.3.  Output
from Netscape and OpenOffice print as garbage.  The same printer works fine with
RH 7.1. This happened with all three of the drivers available for this printer
cdj850, gimp, and pcl3.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect the printer to the system
2. Print something from Netscape or OpenOffice (postscript output)

Actual Results:  Many pages of garbage characters strewn around the page. 
Nothing closely resembling the correct output.

Additional info:

I followed the instructions on the http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net web page to
upgrade hpijs driver and tried that.  It worked better in that I got correct
output for about half the page and then the printer stopped printing.  The queue
showed "stalled".  The printing was not spaced properly though.  It was all
pushed up to the top of the page and larger blank areas between text was
squished out.
