Description Michael Wardle 2003-03-10 23:51:01 UTC
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 
"79.00FE" error. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Additional info: 
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?

False alarm. 
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.
