shared printer ... stumped...

Post by John » Sun, 27 Jul 2003 05:53:12



Running AIX 4.2.1, D3 7.1 I have a shared printer.
using: startshp 1,1,0,hp.lzr.unix,(/usr/bin/enq -P 'lp0' )
in AIX, "/usr/bin/enq -P 'lp0' mynovel.txt" works!
in D3, "block-print John (p" works!
however in D3,"list-files (p" does not work... where did I go wrong??
Thanks for your comments,
Cheers,

John.

I just tried it on 7.2.1 d3 aix 5 and it works fine.

Things to look for:
Look for its entry into the spooler: lpstat -plp0
I'd try testing it to a hold file: see if it works: check the peqs
file for weird data that would cause it to fail.

Thanks Adam!

Actually, I just found out my /var filespace was all used up! that's why the
larger printouts failed. Arghh... I need a weekend!

Thank!

John.

1. Still having printer problems on d3/Linux shared printers

OK.  Thanks for all your help from my last post re: this problem.  !df
looks file, /var is only at 36%, and :mx#0:\ is in the printcap entry.
Why is this happening?  (Please give me a better answer than "HP doesn't
like large print jobs."  Try telling that to a client!)
Here's what lpq gives me:  (Anyone know where '0 bytes' jobs come from?)

:!lpq -Plp2
linux_server: sending to 192.168.0.41
Rank   Owner      Job  Files                                 Total Size
1st    root       159  (standard input)                      547999
bytes
0 bytes
3rd    root       160  (standard input)                      13998 bytes

14th   root       171  (standard input)                      13999 bytes

1 entries
  0 - port busy. No info

PLEASE HELP!  Like I said before, this happens almost every Friday, and
guess what...it's Friday (TGIF? I don't know anymore.)
