Printing restart (lpr)
My printer is an HP DJ870. I use lpr, have not made the change to
lprng. When I have a long queue, as well as perhaps for other
reasons, the output stream goes garbage, perhaps skips some bytes.
I have tried turning off the printer, deleting jobs, but cannot get
back normal output from the printer. A single postscript file will
output a stream of one or half, or less, of one line at the top of
each page, like postscript has been aliased to garbage. Nothing I can
do seems to make it right, unless I reboot.
Is there any sequence of steps that will enable me to cleanly recover
to a known state between printer and spooler? I'd rather not lose a
