Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85932
printing using postscript causes 79.00FE error on HP laserjet
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
When I send a page to an HP laserjet print queue created using the
Red Hat Printer Configuration Tool, the printer experiences an
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This happens mostly when attempting to print from Konqueror.
It does not seem to happen when printing a test page from the
printer configuration tool.
A Web search suggests this is a problem created by a buggy
ghostscript, but it's possible the problem lies with Konqueror.
I'd rather not try to reproduce this too often, as it takes my office
printer down. :-(
I heard not long ago that this was due to spaces in job names confusing the
printer's firmware when driving the LCD. Perhaps turn off the LCD or upgrade
the firmware would fix the problem?
I've just discovered there were several Windows users trying to print a corrupt PDF
yesterday, which I think would also cause this error.
After telling them to abstain from printing for a few moments, I was able to (mostly)
successfully send a print job to the printer.
Sorry about that.
