Re: Oops, I'm having some trouble printing through LAN

Well, I've been printing to LAN (second day with the printer working), and so far all is good.
Did you set the printer as default? I found that certain programs will bypass the print dialog and try to go straight to the default printer, which in that case will be nothing (I found this happens a lot with Flash animations that has print options).
And give the program some time. It is alpha quality and processing the page can take a while. I noticed that it can take close to a minute after I issue the print command before any network activity between the printer and Linux box is visible on my network switch for a single page full color printout, and the switch will relay quite a lot of data, taking up more time, before any printing activity is finally noticeable on the printer.
Lastly, does the distro you're using ship with a foo2zjs package too? Maybe your install is overwritten by a package upgrade. Try reinstalling the foo2zjs that you downloaded from this website and compiled.
