After some time, and many succesful prints, printing stops working, complaining that there was an error sending commands to the printer. As far as I can tell, it's not even invoking my print command when it gets the error. This is with Mozilla 1.1 on Solaris 8.
Reporter: What is the _exact_ message returned by Mozilla ?
The exact message is: There was a problem printing. An instruction that was sent to the printer failed. This just happened while using the default print command.
Per mozilla/html/base/src/printing.properties this maps to the error code |NS_ERROR_GFX_PRINTER_CMD_FAILURE| - which is used four times in mozilla/gfx/src/ps/nsPostScriptObj.cpp (see http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/ident?i=NS_ERROR_GFX_PRINTER_CMD_FAILURE). Reporter: Can you check whether a similar problem (e.g. can't print after printing multiple times) occurs with the Xprint module, too ?
Summary: after some time, print command stops working → [ps] after some time, print command stops working
Reporter: Can you check whether a similar problem (e.g. can't print after printing multiple times) occurs with the Xprint module, too?
I don't use Xprint, and since setup seems far from obvious, I'm not very interested in trying it. However, I haven't seen this problem in quite some time. I believe it was due to running out of file descriptors. I think some other fix solved the file descriptor bug, and I haven't seen this bug since then. As far as I'm concerned, you can close this bug report.
Resolving per the previous comment. If anyone can reproduce this with a current software release, please feel free to reopen it.
