Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 967879
printer blocked when second page contains only a few lines
Last modified: 2013-05-28 12:08:47 EDT
Description of problem:
This bug is copy of Bug 967873 FC18, because I think it's also valid for FC19
Printer Canon Pixma MP540.
New installation FC19, RC4, LXDE Live iso i686.
there was previously an error in Gutenprint-Cups, which seems now to be solved, because the new version of mtpaint (mtpaint-3.40-11.fc19) seems to comprize part of kprinter now (Reason Bug 964588)
Previously (without install of kprinter) there was an error in Gutenprint-Cups. When I printed 2 pages text, the second page only with a few lines (about 5 or 6). Then there was no page eject on my Canon Pixma MP540 for the second page. The printer was blocked totally. I had manually - by hand - to pull out the hanging sheet of paper, It was not possible to switch off the printer. I had to power off the printer by unplugging from the power to be able to start again. This happens also in FC18 still now, I think I don't have mtpaint-3.40-11 in my fc18 installation (64 bit, Gnome Desktop).
Is it worthwhile to write a bug? Or is the solution of this problem with mtpaint-3.40-11 sufficient? I think on FC18 Gnome Desktop I have no mtpaint installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
current version of Gutenprint-Cups (27-05-2013), or elder version
In my system with a Canon Pixma MP540 it's easy.
Print 2 pages text, second page should contain only 5 or 6 lines on the top.
If this happens also with other printers, I don't know.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. printing 2 pages text, second page contains onla some lines
Printer blocked totally while trying to finish printing on the second page
printing 2 pages of text.
You only need to file the bug once, for the oldest affected release. Marking as a duplicate.
