HP deskjet 940c on linksys printserver prints alternating good page and bad page
I have a problem printing to my HP printer.
What is my problem? I have a page (one page - text an graphic) to print. When I sent it to my printer it prints OK. When I sent it agian, the output is totally garbled. When I sent it again (a third time) it is OK. Sent it again (4th time) it is garbled. Sent it again ... you get the picture ;-). Alternating good and bad pages.
What is my setup?
I run Fedora 14 with Cups 1.4.6. The printer is a HP Deskjet 940C. It is connected to a linksys wireless print server. It is configured in CUPS to use ipp printing. The driver I use in Cups is 'CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.6 Simplified (color, 2-sided printing)'.
Has anyone had the same problem? And hopefully a solution ;-).
Do you have hplip installed?
It should be in the repos. If you don't have it, be sure to get hplip-gui also.
thanks for your reply. I already had hplib installed and hplib-gui couldn't detect my printer on the wireless printer server. However, by scanning through the options of the hp device manager I noticed a setting for the printer driver. I was using the Gutenberg driver in Cups and changed this to another driver (it shows in Cups as hpcups 3.10.9). And it works great now ;-).
Installing hplib-gui was not the final solution but it put me on track.
So, thanks again, you made one guy very happy.
