suse 10.0 +1230 brother printer

Hello all,

I'm new to this forum because I'm having a problem I can't solve.
And I hope you guys can help me out...
I'm using suse 10.0 for some months now (what I realy like btw) but there is one problem that is realy frustrating. blink.gif

The problem:
I have a brother 1230 laser printer on a windows machine.
I use a network, different pc's on a switch.
When I print from a windows client everything works fine.
When I print from my linux machine... it stops after 2 pages.
But when I make a document with 4 pages and on those pages only the numbers 1 to 4.. it print outs every page. When I make a document of 4 pages full with text... it stops after 2 pages. When I make a document of 4 pages with little text it prints out all those 4 pages...
So there seems to be a problem with the size of the print job... But I don't know how to solve this.

I installed the printer with the webinterface localhost:631 and with Yast.
I also tryed the linux drivers from the brother support site, but nothing helped so far.
The internet didn't gave me the solution (maby I was searching with the wrong keywords )

So... if you smart guys can help me out, or give me a hint or something I would realy appriciate it.
