Bug#670777: foomatic-db: Printer keeps "printing document" long after printing is done

Package: foomatic-db
Version: 20100630-1
Severity: normal

I posted about this issue on the cups user forum and received the following
"My guess is that the Foomatic driver isn't sending a PJL end-of-job sequence."

Full story:

I have a debian stable/squeeze server with cups 1.4.4 and a hp laserjet 3015
foomatic/postscript connected by usb. After anything is printed via cups, the
printer continues to display "printing document" with a blinking status led for
about 5 minutes.

Cups reports printer status as Idle- "Printer is now online." The driver is
POSTSCRI.PPD and I didn't have to do anything special to make cups recognize
the printer.

If the printer is connected via usb to one of our windows workstations, it
resets to Ready immediately after the last page comes out. But with cups - and
this applies to things printed over the network, locally, or even a test page
from the cups maintenance menu - the light blinks for approximately 5 minutes

The printer does accept more jobs from cups, but it's an issue because it's
also our office copier, and it refuses to copy anything until it's finished
"printing document." We can "cancel" the print but I'd prefer to solve this

Let me know if you need any more information.
