Description misty 2000-01-23 19:16:32 UTC
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.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-02-07 17:29:59 UTC
You should use the cdj880 driver.
Look at
for details.

Comment 2 misty 2000-02-25 22:04:59 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-02-25 22:09:59 UTC
Does this help:

cat >formfeed.c <<EOF
#include <stdio.h>
main() {
	FILE *f=fopen("/dev/lp0", "w");
	fprintf(f, "%c", 12);
gcc -O2 formfeed.c

Closing due to lack of user input
