print job spools out but does not initiate print function


Added a HP laserjet 1320 pCL6 to Linux Box linux 7.10 gnu Ubuntu. Printing from Gedit or Firefox spools out to the LJ and the printer sits there with the light Blinking. If I punch the button, the print funcion initiates and completes.
Any help tendered will be greatly appreciated.

Check your printers setting whether or not it has a way
to enforce a form feed. I guess that's what's missing.

Let me rephrase the question. How do I check and adjust printer settings in Linux?

Can't tell you how it's done in Ubuntu, don't use Gnome, and am
not sure that ubuntu enables cups' web-interface by default; you
can try to navigate to http://localhost:631/printers/ ....


Cheers,
Tink

Got ta love that link! Still no Joy --- See the printer and can print to the printer spooler but still have to walk over and presss the Green button on the printer. Don't see anywhere to actually initate the Print Action in the GUI linked above/

Does the printers "Configure Printer" button bring up any
settings pertaining to form feeds? Also I don't know what
the green button on your printer does - it wouldn't be a
power button by any chance?

No, Not a power button. There is a light with a triangle enclosing an exclamation point that blinks when the print job is ready to print and there is a green button with a similar inscription that starts the printout when depresses. I think that green button will also initiate a test page if there is no print job in the spool.
