Brother HL-1450 laser printing one page only with 9.2

Dear Friends,

I have installed a Brother HL-1450 on an XP machine using driver V 1.42, and I am sharing the printer via smb on my Linux machine [Sony Vaio FX270] with Mandrake 9.2. I used PrinterDrake to install the printer on the Linux box so it has this driver: Ghostscript and hl1250 (recommended.) It prints the test pages fine. But in real life it only prints one page no matter how many pages are in the job. Then the data light on the printer control panel stops blinking and remains on. If you press the control panel button, you get a second page which has the beginning to the job's text and then this: "PJL JOB NAME ="Ghost" SET ECONOMYMODE=OFF @ PLJ SET MEDIATYPE=REGULAR @PLJ SET SOURCETRAY=AUTO"

And then it stops. If i go back to the print job and set it to print only the second page it prints but only one page.

The printer works fine on the XP machine, and also on the SONY VAIO when I boot it into Win 2000. The only problem is in Mandrake 9.2.

From what I read at, the HL-1450 should run perfectly under Mandrake, so I think it must be some setting that needs to be changed.

I would appreciate any help, and I am pretty new to Linux.

Many thanks,
