multipage document with color & B&W pages doesn't print [solved]
Posted by: bodinux ()

Hi Rick

I installed your latest driver.

I have two page document from openoffice: one page has some color characters, the other page is just B&W.

When I try to print the two pages using the color queue then the document silently fails to print.
If I print only the first page using the color queue, it does work.
If I print only the second page using the B&W queue, it does work.

Do I understand correctly that in order to print documents with B&W pages and color pages, it is necessary to separate the B&W and color pages ?

cheers

Bodinux

Put the PostScript (.ps) for the document on the web so I can access it.

No PDFs!!!!

$ lpr -P mc2530c ~/tmp/print_fail.pdf

$ lpr -P mc2530 ~/tmp/print_fail.pdf

Works fine on Fedora 13 in mono OR color. 2 pages printed out in both cases.

I tired your lines and the printer warms up but nothing prints. The LCD goes from "warming up" to "waiting".


I filed a bug in Ubuntu : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cups/+bug/374416

The first part of this entry relates to communication difficulties which have been solved between Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.10. The second part (starting with comment #31) is related to this file which I sent you.

My long understanding was that it was necessary to have two queues. Print B&W on the B&W queue, print color on the color queue. This results from my experiments that printing a color page on the B&W queue would lead to no print.

Lately, I narrowed the problem to the print_fail.pdf document which neither prints on the B&W nor on the color queue.

Viewing my previous entry on this forum from 3 years ago, I conclude that this was a longstanding issue on Ubuntu, since I have changed my computer several times and installed 7 ubuntu releases.

From the Changelog:

        * foo2lava.c: Iff MODE_COLOR and nbie = 1, then it is a mono page.

Please download, make, make install again.
