Fuji-Xerox M205b: whole page squeezed at the top
Posted by: snik ()
Date: February 24, 2014 04:46PM

Hi! rickrich.

I have a problem similar to zana.
My printer is the Fuji-Xerox M205b, connected to a desktop PC running Win7.
Then with my notebook running LinuxMint 15, I installed the foo2hbpl2 driver and the CM205 PPD file (P205 PPD not working), through Samba connected to the desktop.

It works when I print the test page, only that the whole page squeezed at the top two inches of the paper.

I tried the instructions you gave zana but they didn't work.
Please tell me how to solve this. Is it possible to edit the PPD file to make things easier?
Thanks very much.

Maybe its resolution. Try this:
$ cd foo2zjs

$ foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r600x600 testpage.ps > xxx.prn

$ nc 192.168.xxx.yyy 9100 < xxx.prn               #network
OR
# cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0                         #USB
And:
$ foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r1200x1200 testpage.ps > yyy.prn

$ nc 192.168.xxx.yyy 9100 < yyy.prn               #network
OR
# cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0                         #USB
And report back.

This is a monochrome printer, thus the color CM205 WILL NOT WORK.

Use a monochrome PPD, such as the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P205 or the Xerox WorkCentre 3045.

Thanks rickrich.

(1)
On the Terminal I tried this:
-----------------------------
# foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r600x600 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
/usr/bin/foo2hbpl2-wrapper: 253: /usr/bin/foo2hbpl2-wrapper: cannot open testpage.ps: No such file
#
-----------------------------


(2)
and I'm not sure of this:
"# nc 192.168.xxx.yyy 9100 < xxx.prn "

Is 192.168.xxx.yyy means my notebook's ip address ?
or I have to type something like "192.168.1.130" ?


(3)
I tried again with the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P205 and Xerox WorkCentre 3045's PPD files, after the Test Pages print command executed, the printer got no response.
Also, with the Xerox WorkCentre 6015's PPD file, I got the same result to CM205.

What should I do next ?

Well, you have to go into the foo2zjs directory to print testpage.ps.

192.168.xxx.yyy 9100 < xxx.prn

is for a networked printer. You use the printer's address.

If it is USB connected, then you use the second form. Plug it in to your notebook USB port.

I don't know anything about Windows.

I did this, still not meet the luck yet:

The printer was USB connected to my notebook running LinuxMint 15, setup with CM205 PPD file, test page again with squeezed size.

On the Terminal I typed the following.
--------------
# whereis foo2zjs
foo2zjs: /usr/bin/foo2zjs /usr/bin/X11/foo2zjs /usr/share/foo2zjs /usr/share/man/man1/foo2zjs.1.gz
# cd /usr/bin/foo2zjs
bash: cd: /usr/bin/foo2zjs: Not a directory

# cd /usr/share/foo2zjs
foo2zjs # ls
crd gamma-lookup.ps gamma.ps hplj1020_icon.gif hplj10xx_gui.tcl
foo2zjs #

foo2zjs # foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r600x600 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
/usr/bin/foo2hbpl2-wrapper: 253: /usr/bin/foo2hbpl2-wrapper: cannot open testpage.ps: No such file

foo2zjs # foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r600x600 gamma.ps > xxx.prn
foo2hbpl2-wrapper: Illegal resolution 600x600
foo2zjs # foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r1200x1200 gamma.ps > xxx.prn
foo2hbpl2-wrapper: Illegal resolution 1200x1200
foo2zjs #
----------------

Please tell me more.
Thanks.

Did you download the source? I only support MY source, not 3rd-party distros. From the INSTALL file:

INSTALLATION
------------
Unpack:
    $ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
    $ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
    $ cd foo2zjs

Compile:
    $ make

Install driver, foomatic XML files, PPD files, and extra files:
    $ su                OR      $ sudo make install
    # make install

and from the web page:
Questions and Support

    If you installed as per the above instructions, then click on our forums for questions and support.

    If you installed a THIRD PARTY (e.g. Ubuntu, Gentoo, etc.) foo2zjs package, then read the INSTALL file and follow the directions. No third party support is given. You MUST install using the above procedure.

Thanks again rickrich.

You are right, I formerly install the foo2zjs from the site "http://foo2hbpl.rkkda.com/";, I do not know why the installation was not completed yet.
Anyway, I followed your instruction and install it once again. After that I can do the following command:
----------------------
$ foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r600x600 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
# cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0

$ foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r1200x1200 testpage.ps > yyy.prn
# cp yyy.prn /dev/usb/lp0
----------------------
both times beautiful test pages were printed out.


After that, I tried to do a normal printing from a web page using Firefox, but the print out squeezed as before.
Now comes one more question, how to add this "foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r600x600" thing permanently into the print command?

So now *delete* and *recreate* the printer. Use: a monochrome PPD, such as the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P205 or the Xerox WorkCentre 3045.

That is what will connect "foo2hbpl2-wrapper -pa4 -r600x600" to the printer definition.

Yes!Yes!Yes!

I use the Xerox WorkCentre 3045 PPD file, finally it works like a champ!
Many thanks to rickrich again.
