Q: Blank page when printing with Samba from NT 4.0 to Linux print server

Post by Hermann Flac » Thu, 22 Oct 1998 04:00:00



I'm using the S.u.S.E 5.3 Linux  and Samba 1.9.18.p.8.
When I'm printing on an HP4 printer with Wordpad or Pagemaker or other
Windows-Printer then the Linux printer puts a blank page at the end of
the job.

This is an excerpt from /etc/printcap

raw|lp3|ljet4-a4-raw|ljet4 a4 raw:\
        :lp=/dev/lp1:\
        :sd=/var/spool/lpd/ljet4-a4-raw:\
        :lf=/var/spool/lpd/ljet4-a4-raw/log:\
        :af=/var/spool/lpd/ljet4-a4-raw/acct:\
        :if=/var/lib/apsfilter/bin/ljet4-a4-raw:\

        :sh:sf:

HP4|remote printer on server:\
        :sd=/var/spool/lpd/HP4:\
        :rm=server:\
        :rp=raw:\
       :sh:sf:

An here the excerpt from smb.conf:

; Sektion [printers]
        [printers]
        comment         = Network printer
        path                    = /var/tmp
        read only               = yes
        browsable               = yes
        public                  = yes
        printable               = yes

; Samba network printer
        [HP4]
        security                        = user
        path                    = /var/spool/lpd/HP4
        printer name            = lp3
        writeable               = no
        browsable               = yes
        public                  = yes
        printable               = yes
        lprm command            = /usr/bin/lprm -P%p %j
        lpq command             = /usr/bin/lpq %p
        print command           = /usr/bin/lpr -r -P %p %s

Is there any hint?

Thanks!

Now I got the solution:

put the folllowing line in the file /etc/apsfilterrc.<myPrinter> to
"yes":

PRINT_RAW_SUPPRESS_FORMFEED="yes"

Good bye!

1. print problem, blank page printing

Hi,

We have a LAN. Print server is a solaris based work station. We have sun
based workstations also. Our network printer is HP 6MP. We send 2-3
files or even sometimes one file for printing from different
workstations. As we wait for the print out, printer spits out blank
pages. Sometimes there is a line of garbage on a page but usually it
spits out blank pages. I turn the printer off/on. This solves the
problem for sometime. Then the same problem occures again. Why?. this is
making me crazy.
