Description of problem:
I am unable to send print jobs to a Hawking lpd print server on the network
using RH 9. Things work fine under RH 8. The printer is an HP 4, hooked up to
a Hawking print server, that has an LPD service.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lpr -Pprinter file
Actual Results: Data light blinks, then stops. No print jobs are printed
Expected Results: Print the file
Everything works fine to the same prin server/printer on a RH 8 machine.
User error: I deleted the fonts in /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1 while
troubleshooting font related problems for OpenOffice. Once I re-installed the
urw-fonts package, printing worked fine.
