Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8776
hp 812 with dj500-UP filter
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
Actually any filter I use with the hp 812c printer. It prints the job just
fine, and spits the pages out, etc. But then the form feed light comes on,
and continues blinking until I push it, at which time it clears the printer
of the print job. Just annoying because I have to hit form-feed for no
reason. Send EOF and fix stairstepping are both enabled.
You should use the cdj880 driver.
It still happens wtih the cdj880. It also happens with plain old cat
file>/dev/lp0, only you have to hit form-feed before the job will print, instead
of it printing before the problem occurs. I'm not sure what package this bug
actually belongs to.
Does this help:
cat >formfeed.c <<EOF
FILE *f=fopen("/dev/lp0", "w");
fprintf(f, "%c", 12);
gcc -O2 formfeed.c
Closing due to lack of user input
