Upgraded to woody and printing from KDE stopped
This problem's beating me to death.
I am trying to get printing services to work under woody, which I
installed over potato last weekend. I've installed LPRng and apsfilter,
and did my last apt-xxxx Install a couple of hours ago. I'm using a
Brother HL-1240 printer, which worked well under potato.
I went and reran /usr/share/apsconfigure/SETUP, and am now using the
hl1250 driver. The test page printed *beautifully*, but I still got an
error message when printing.
I then manually editted /etc/printcap, changing the semi-colon ( ; )
after "hl1250" to a colon ( : ). That fixed one error message
(apparently there's a bug in apsfilter/SETUP).
When I print from (e.g.) Advanced Editor, I get a catastrophe error
message, which reads:
Status Information: sending job 'family@localhost+680' to
lp|hl1250@localhost connecting to 'localhost',attempt 1 connected to
'localhost' requesting printer lp|hl1250@localhost job
'family @localhost+680' transfer to lp|hl1250@localhost failed error
"NONZERO RFC1179 ERROR CODE FROM SERVER' with ack 'ACK_FAIL'
sending str '^Blp|hl1250 to lp|hl1250@localhost error msg: 'spool queue
for 'lp_hl1250 does not exist on server localhost' error msg:
'non-existent printer or you need to run 'checkpc -f''
I ran checkpc -f; it gave no response.
I did a $ lpr printtest.ps
--and it printed all but the first line! (Albeit in the wrong font!)
