VERY SLOW printing in FreeBSD?!?


Hi,
I am having problems with my FreeBSD again...
I have just set up my HP PSC 1315 (all-in-one) USB printer, using the HP-PSC_1310-hpijs PPD from here and HPIJS driver (1.6.1) port, using LPD. Also I am using the foomatic-rip perl script. Now I can print, but it prints very slowly (it will print a line, and will wait about two seconds, then will print another line, and so on, until the job is complete). I heard people saying that I should use psc 1210 ppd, and CUPS. For certain reasons I do not want to use CUPS. Also I read that with LPT printer this can be fixed with using lpta0 (or something) instead of lpt0, but my printer is usb, and i only have ulpt0 and unlpt0 ( I do not know difference between them).

My /etc/printcap:
Quote:
psc1315|Local printer USB:\
:lp=/dev/unlpt0:\
:af=/usr/local/lib/HP-PSC_1310-hpijs.ppd:\
:if=/usr/local/bin/foomatic-rip:\
:sd=/var/spool/lpd/psc1315:\
:mx#0:sh:
So is there a solution for this?

I really have no idea, so take this for what it's worth --

It's not that you have a USB2 printer plugged into a USB1.1 port is it?

No it is not, it is USB 1.1 printer, tested it on windows machine without USB 2.0 support... This was my first thought when I saw the speed. I have it working now with cups, but it sucks, my print server now is out of disk space, and a little bit slower. ( altough hd space was problem and before )

So it's still going super slow in CUPS, or did you figure it out? I'm having the same prolem with CUPS, in FreeBSD 5.3-Release. If you can help me that would be excellent.

Mine seems like it's even slower than that, as it may take upwards to 5-10 minutes per page. But sometimes it prints flawlessly...

I have no problem with cups, I had problems with LPD, in cups it prints very good, but cupsd is slowing my old server. So I cannot help you about this .

I seem to have figured it out now. There were two options I got in my cupsd.conf set now that have made it work good so far.
