What do you try to print?

Did you try with a simple text file?

I am trying to print a report file generated by oracle.
When trying with a simple text file there is no problem

Regards.

Haha...

Then maybe you would need to tell your printer in which format you send the file ex: PS, RAW, etc...
But I'm not the expert here.

You can have a look here anyway, that may give you a lead:

Best regards,

I noticed that inside the report file there is escape sequence like :^L^R
If i remove the escape sequence i can print the file correctly.
I there a way to let linux support escape sequence?
Regads .
