OK, i have an hp deskjet 722c on /dev/lpt0, i think i set everything up as described in the docs... but here's the problem:
when i print using
lpr -Pascii test
lpr -Pcoloreco test
what happens is that it seems to print, the printer turns on (i.e. the light comes on) but nothing comes out
in my lpd-errs i get messages about the printer being restarted several times and no pages printed like this:
May 22 21:39:15 dhcp-157-319 pnm2ppa: Starting print job
May 22 21:39:15 dhcp-157-319 pnm2ppa: No pages printed!
May 22 21:39:15 dhcp-157-319 lpd: restarting asci
and finally a fatal error:
May 22 21:39:19 dhcp-157-319 lpd: ascii: job could not be printed (cfA001dh
May 22 21:39:25 dhcp-157-319 lpd: mail sent to user root about job test on
printer ascii (FATALERR)
any help would be greatly appreciated.
