pb with Printing using CUPS v1.1.x and lpd LaserJet1100

Hi all,

not sure this is the proper NG but I couldn't find any CUPS related NG so far...

I do have a strange issue with my wrong configuration for sure!

I have a printer (HP LaserJet1100) connected to my SMC7404WBRA printer connector. The only working way I get something on the printer was CUPS by using KDE print manager from utilities menu, selecting Remote LPD queue with the IP of the router (mine was, then the
name of the queue (LPT1).
Following the wizard I selected the proper printer I guess here some extract from the content of the file named HPLaserJet1100(CUPSv1.1.x).ppd in /etc/cups/ppd :

*FormatVersion:    "4.3"
*FileVersion:    "1.1"
*LanguageVersion: English
*LanguageEncoding: ISOLatin1
*PCFileName:    "HPIJS.PPD"

*TTRasterizer:    Type42

*DefaultResolution: 600dpi

well so far up to now, everything is fine and even the test page during the wizard is definitely correctly printed. Even twice but still from wizard.

UNFORTUNATELY, any other pages printed afterward from any apps, including KDE print manager just print something like

%!PS-Adobe-3.0 then line feed
    %RBINumCopies: 1 and a lot of junk on probably many pages...

lpstat command give me this :

#lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: HPLaserJet1100(CUPSv1.1.x)

printer HPLaserJet1100(CUPSv1.1.x) is idle.  enabled since Jan 01 00:00
        Data file sent successfully

I'm looking for any assistance or good pointer for me to investigate further. Feel free to ask any further information.

In advance many thanks,
