Printing pauses


I own an HP Laserjet 4L. I have never had a problem with it at all, under Linux or under Windows when I actually ran that years ago. My problem now is that when printing multiple pages, the printer seems to pause and power down like there is no other pages coming to it. Then it'll power back up and print the next page. It's never done that before. I am running Gentoo and the printer is using the standard cups laserjet 4l driver. I've used this same setup and distro for a long time and never had this happen. Is there some setting I screwed up?

FWIW, this won't answer your question, but my LaserJet 5P behaves exactly the same way, and always has. I've assumed this could be corrected by increasing the amount of buffer memory in the printer, but I don't really print enough that it's an issue. -- J.W.

I just the same problem start with a printing pause. I am using an HP LaserJet 4+. Did you ever come up with a solution. It takes forever to print a few pages.

It seems it was just setup wrong. Upon reinstalling the drivers and telling it not to print on a4 but letter. It all worked great. Now I'm out of paper
