No form feed after printing short form


Hi there. We are using several printers on our Linux RH network to print customer invoices and receipts. Receipts are short forms of just 21 or 22 lines. Two of the printers (an HP LJ1300 and a Dell 5200) eject the receipt paper automatically; the other two HP (a LJ 4200 and a LJ2420) do not eject. You have to press the green button on the printer. Is there a solution to that? They are all set up with the same PCL settings. Would appreciate input or suggestions. Thanks.

You are usually able to set for a form feed after printing somewhere. printers.conf?

Thanks, business_kid. That helps. But I am not a programmer. So I'll have to take it up with those guys.

Neither am I. It's configuration, not programming. Try whatever you used to set printing up.
