RE: Gimp Print Problem

The attachment is a segment of the /var/log/cups/error_log beginnig two lines before the first "false" result and continuing to the Ghostscript exit. This was generated by trying to print a single line of text.

If anyone can help resolve this problem I would appreciate the help.

Background: The Epson Stylus Color 860 printer was working perfectly with a purchased version of CUPS installed on a Debian Woody system with a 2.4.18 kernel. It is attached to a USB port. At that time I was using Gnome.

Two changes took place. First, I switched to Testing and a 2.4.20 kernel trying to get an Actiontec Wireless USB Adapter to work - I have never succeded. Second, I switched to KDE 2.2.25 to be consistant with the other users in the family. To get the printer to work with KDE installed the Debian cupsys, cupsomatic, gimp, gimp1.2-print and escputil packages.

Current Status: lp testtext prints nothing, generates the attached error_log segment. escputil -s -u -r /dev/usblp0 returns the printer status information. A print test from either localhost:631 ir kde prints a color octogon in the upper left corner and two large L-shaped bars (backward L's).
                           Gimp prints a nice picture.

Note: I usually try to respond from mutt to attach the message to the relavant string. With vi I have worked out how to open two files and cut and paste between them but I haven't figured out how to paste or attach a file to a response being generated by mutt. If there is a way to do this, I would appreciate hearing about it.
