I am trying to get an HP Laserjet printer to work with my Debian3.1 system.
Prior to installing cupsys and hp-ppd I thought I might try and see what happens if I printed something. So I clicked File-->Print in my Firefox browser window.
Shortly after that, the printer started to print, but just garbage. Now the printer wont stop feeding paper and printing one line of garbage on random pages.
If I switch the printer off and back on again, it continues to print garbage. It's being doing this for days now, even after rebooting linux.
Does anyone know what process is sending this garbage to the printer?
Myself and numerous trees will be most grateful if anyone out there can help
