If I want to print somethting, my printer receives the data and then goes into an error state: Mar 15 08:18:54 192.168.187.11 printer: connection with 188.8.131.52 aborted Mar 15 08:18:55 192.168.187.11 printer: offline or intervention needed But if I convert the produced output (mozilla.ps) with ps2ps from ghostscript and send the result to the printer it prints without errors. NB: Postscript printing via ghostscript works as expected. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Print to postscript printer HP Laserjet 2200 DN 2. 3.
The problem seems to be, that the LaserJet only understands Postscript Level 2 while Mozilla produces Postscript Level 3 output. I added ps2ps to my printfilter so the LaserJet now gets Postscript Level 2 code from mozilla. It would be nice, if one can select the PS-Level like in Adobes Acrobat-Reader.
Confirming... ... we need to implement a prefs to a force PS Level-2 only mode in the PostScript module or we will not be able to print on many many printers... Over to dcone...

Summary: postscript printing fails on HP Laserjet 2200 DN → postscript printing fails on printers which only support PS level 2
I rechecked the whole thing by printing mozilla.ps via the HP JetDirect ftp interface. No errors anymore. Now it seems to be a Redhat-Printfilter problem (the Redhat box is^Wwas the printserver for our SunRays). Sorry for the inconvenience caused
