Is anybody out there who knows about linux utilies for controlling
a HP4Mplus or HP4 via the HP Jetdirect interface ?
Following problems appear:
- misformed printouts of ascii raw text. The LF->LF/CR
translation fails like this i.e.:
dfug ruieg ierubnh\n
krgrj iurbnh iuerbn iubn\n
- unessessary trailer pages are printed by the printer or
the jetdirect interface card, it looks like:
The printer is connected via a rm=hp4m entry in /etc/printcap, so
common lpr printerfiltering won't work.
Here is the printcap entry:
Printing postscript through this queue tcp wortks fine. (no filtering
nessesary, :-)). But the unwanted trailer page appears. :-(
HP offers printing controll utilities for unix machines, but this
soft ist a) not free b) only for sun and hpux.
Do you have any suggestions ?
I had heard the clue is in naming the printqueue or and the printerhostname
in a special way. I couldn't figure it out till now. :-((
Any help will be appreciated.
