printing to xp printer...


i'm running fedora core, trying to print to a lexmark x73 on an xp machine.
i added a queue for it, using the printer config tool in gnome.
when i tried to print a test page, nothing printed & it said:

--------------------------

Here are the messages that appeared in the error log:

I [28/Mar/2004:17:54:55 -0700] Adding start banner page "none" to job 1.
I [28/Mar/2004:17:54:55 -0700] Adding end banner page "none" to job 1.
I [28/Mar/2004:17:54:55 -0700] Job 1 queued on 'x73' by 'root'.

I [28/Mar/2004:17:54:56 -0700] Hint: Try setting the LogLevel to "debug" to find out more.

----------------------------

i am really n00b, any suggestions would be great. thanks

OK back a step

Do as it suggests and edit , after making a copy,

/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip

in the file find the area and change the $debug = 0; as suggested then inspect the log file in /tmp to get more clues. Take note of the WARNING and asap revert back to the original file.

# Set debug to 1 to enable the debug logfile for this filter; it will
# appear as defined by $logfile. It will contain status from this
# filter, plus the renderer's stderr output. You can also add a line
# "debug: 1" to your /etc/foomatic/filter.conf to get all your
# Foomatic filters into debug mode.
#
# WARNING: This logfile is a security hole; do not use in production.
my $debug = 0;

# This is the location of the debug logfile (and also the copy of the
# processed PostScript data) in case you have enabled debugging above.
# The logfile will get the extension ".log", the PostScript data ".ps".
my $logfile = "/tmp/foomatic-rip";
