CUPS & Brother HL-1450: junk page appearing before every printout.
I'm running Debian testing with the following packages installed (from dpkg
ii cupsomatic-ppd 20040102-1
ii cupsys 1.1.20candidate6-6
ii cupsys-client 1.1.20candidate6-6
ii cupsys-driver-gimpprint 4.2.5-6
ii lpr 2000.05.07-5
I used the CUPS browser interface to install a Brother HL-1450 laser
printer on the parallel port with the driver "Brother HL-1450 Foomatic
hl1250 (recommended)". I've also tried the others relevant drivers and
replacing lpr with cupsys-bsd, and I always get the same problem: every
printout is preceded by a sheet with some letters (usually "d a b") spread
across the page near the top. This also happens with printouts from
another computer over Samba.
Is this a bug or have I misconfigured something?
