Setup LaserJet Series II
 
Hey everyone,
I just got my hands on a laser printer, but I can't seem to get it configured properly in RedHat 9. I have an HP LaserJet Series II, and I'm using redhat-config-printer to use it. Yet, whenever I send something to be printed on it, it just comes out all messed up and compressed to the left side. It's way too small to read, so I'm not even sure if it's actually printing the file I send. Can somebody point me in the right direction to set this up?

Thanks

It took me days to get my printers working properly and I don't claim to know all the answers but stick at it and you'll get there. This is the place to learn about printing on linux http://www.linuxprinting.org/ If you haven't already, install hpijs-1.5 http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/install.php and get foomatic-gswrapper http://www.linuxprinting.org/downloa...wrapper&show=0 and foomatic-rip http://www.linuxprinting.org/downloa...tic-rip&show=0 Make them executable and put them somewhere in your path (eg, /usr/bin)
