Quite fine (thanks!), but... (duplexer)

Hi All... and thanks first to Rick Richardson!

I have a new Samsung CLP-610ND and I use OpenSuSE 11.0 x86-64 (updated daily with many yum repositories) on a Acer Aspire 8920G.

In OpenPrinting.org site I see your open driver as the suggested one for use with my printer instead of Splix (that doesn't work with it, however). So that, I decided to try/use your one.

On September, the 10th I compile and install your driver following your simple istructions.

But when printing from any software applications (except test page from cups or similar printer setup application), I get out this message on the only printed sheet:

"
SPL-C ERROR - Including Corrupted Header Data

POSITION : 0x0

SYSTEM : src/xl_image

LINE : 811

VERSION : SPL-C 5.35 11-20-2007
"

I think the printer is a... woman!!! ;-)

I got a correct printing also following your istruction in the forum (with nc6):
http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/forum/read.php?58,1355,1355

That's better than what I got with the latest Splix driver, that's for people knowledge:

"
SPL-C ERROR - Please use the proper driver

POSITION : 0x0

SYSTEM : src/xl_image

LINE : 585

VERSION : SPL-C 5.35 11-20-2007
"

Spes ultima dea! (latin for: never lose hope).

Yesterday (September, the 20th), I visit again your site and I note the changelog date, I read the changelog itself and the comment
"foo2qpdl: Change unknown value (margin?) based on page size."
gave me some new hope.

I updated the driver and so I'm able to print! The problem is solved. Thanks! :-)

It still remain an unsolved problem: the duplexer!

When I print with a duplexer capability (i.e. long side...) I obtain the follow message from the printer LCD (display), in english for you:

"MP Paper Tray Empty"

after the first side has been correctly printed and the sheet put away from printer and never kept or retained in the printer after a brief outside view (that is the normal behaviour of Windows XP duplexed printing). Changing and testing various paper source doesn't take me far away... In some cases I get the previous message without any printed sheet...

Any ideas to solve duplexer behaviour? Is that a bug? Some uncorrectly predefined "qpdl" fields (tray? ...) when using (hardware - automatic) duplexed modes and relative to sheet second side? ...

I make my tests printing pdf files with Gnome 2.22 and Evince 2.22.1.1.

If you need more information, write to forum that I'll certainly give you.

Thanks very much. Have a nice Sunday,

Carlo

p.s. A little suggestion: why not to mark the tarball in some way like these:

foo2zjs.2008.09.05.tar.gz
foo2zjs.2008.09.18.tar.gz

and so on? ;-)

This is with the automatic duplexer???? Or with manual duplexing?

For manual duplexing, do this:

Print -> Page Setup -> Only print -> Odd Sheets

then:

Print -> Page Setup -> Only print -> Even Sheets

OR

Print -> Job -> Odd Pages

then:

Print -> Job -> Even Pages

With the automatic duplexer!

Carlo

p.s.

a) CLP-610ND means Color Led Printer - 610 Network Duplexer

b) see again my modified first post (bold sentence), hope it may help

Please print a 4 page file to a FILE: (e.g. clp610-page4-duplex.prn) using Win/XP or Vista. Then, upload it to a site on the web. Then, tell me where to get it.

Almost ok... only one more step...

The duplexer options:

1 - long side (standard)

2 - short side (flip)

3 - single side

run like this:

1 - flip (ko)

2 - flip (ok)

3 - single side (ok)

If you need to compare two .prn files that only differ from duplexer orientation print, make me a post!

Carlo

Ciao Rick!

Always still flip!

Follow Windows XP simple printing cases:

1) long edge print
http://digilander.libero.it/carlo.strata/prn/long-edge.prn

2) short edge print
http://digilander.libero.it/carlo.strata/prn/short-edge.prn

3) single sided print
http://digilander.libero.it/carlo.strata/prn/single-sided.prn

Sorry, I got it from browser... I did note that dimension of the new (2008.09.23) file was the same of my previous download (2008.09.22)...! But...

The frequent browser cache trouble!!!

Now I have used wget and then the new file is different... (1.556.168 byte instead of 1.556.100): forgive me!

Now I try and I'll give you the deserved satisfation! :-)

Wait...

Carlo
