Problem: Networkprinter with plp (self-duplicating jobs)

Post by Peter Münste » Sat, 20 Mar 1999 04:00:00

Could anybody help me please with the following problem?
I am using a networkprinter on our local ethernet (hostname=brother)
with plp Version 4.1.2. with the following printcap-entry:

lp|lp2|PS_600dpi-a4-auto-mono-600|PS_600dpi a4 auto mono 600:\


The problem: Often (not always, but I don't know why...), a printjob
started with the lpr-command dublicates itself so that I get a lot of
copies of the job (I must then kill the queue to stop the desaster!)

Please send me an e-mail, if you can help me!
Thanks in advance, Peter
