Package: lprng
Version: 3.8.26-1

thx for the job on lprng packaging!

context: Debian GNU-Linux 3.0r2 w some 'testing' and even 'instable'
packages, kernel 2.6.5 and libc6 2.3.2.ds1-10
using lprngtool 1.3.2-5

lprng (stable) was working normally.  I upgraded to 'testing'.

all printed pages (PS perfectly produced by dvips) only contain a "No spo=
file found." line

this err message comes from '/usr/share/lprngtool/master-filter' (from th=
lprngtool package)

this script is used here as a 'filter command' ("if" parameter in the
printcap file)

it uses (line 166...) the envvar CONTROL which is not defined when it run=
under the 'testing' version of lprng, but is defined when the stable
(3.8.10-1.2) one invokes it, and then holds a copy of whatever the conten=
of the 'cf*' file placed in the spool dir

as a workaround I phased out this script from my printcap (no more 'if'

but now my printer (Lexmark e322) is slowed down by a pause after each
printed page, even with a printcap file generated by lprngtool.  the
printer is approx two times slower than before.  apparently there is no
useless transformation (gs does not run), I did not trace (not enough tim=
but think that the script is slow at recognizing the input format

under lprngtool I tweaked carefully some parameters (sync pagecount
waitend, prefix_z and printer type: 'postscript' or 'lexmark_optra_e312'
... one after the other, w a test after each modification) )
... to no avail!

the stable lprng chain works OK

Package: lprng
Version: 3.8.28-1

This problem was fixed in lprng 3.8.28, 3.8.27 may even have the fix but
3.8.28 definitely has it.
