Description jstrand1 1999-10-20 04:32:42 UTC
I currently use an HP DeskJet712C printer, and although it is only partitally supported, with the drivers from httptech.com, I was able to get the printer to work in black and white. I would add an entry to printerdb in rhl-printfilters, then add the printer (which was detected on lp0) with printtool (with some extra options telling it what driver to use). This worked perfectly in 6.0, but now when I restart lpd and try to print a test page, it gets hung up and does not print. Note, I can print via other means, so it is not the printer. However, the functionality provided with RedHat 6.0 is missed.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-20 04:42:59 UTC
Do you have the line: alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc in /etc/conf.modules?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-20 14:10:59 UTC
Did you recompile ghostscript with the different driver you're using again?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-29 20:48:59 UTC
It's not running out of disk space, correct? What happens if you install the rhs-printfilters from 6.0?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-01 18:31:59 UTC
Try installing the rhs-printfilters from 6.0, and copying /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/master-filter to /var/spool/lpd/<whatever>/filter. Does that solve the problem? What does the huge file in /tmp look like? ------- Additional Comments From 11/04/99 12:15 ------- In order to get the parallel port detected using the 2.2.12-20 kernel, you must have the following conditions met: 1) Have "alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc" in /etc/conf.modules 2) Use a DMA parallel port mode. VERY IMPORTANT! This is of course fixed in the 2.2.12-27 kernel. None of the above apply for this kernel. ------- Additional Comments From 11/04/99 20:14 ------- add: parport_lowlevel parport_pc to /etc/conf.modules
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-08 18:45:59 UTC
OK, this should be fixed (the pbm2ppa problem) with rhs-printfilters-1.58, which will be in the next Raw Hide release.
