No Portrait prints from Brother printer on Solaris
Posted on 2004-10-20
We are running Solaris 8 and are having problems printing with certain Brother printers. The prints come out fine in when sent to the landscape queue, but when sending a print to the portrait queue, the data light on the printer just flashes once, then nothing comes out.
We have checked the script for this specific queue in /etc/lp/interfaces, but everything looks fine. We used the same method for setting up the printer and queue as we do with all our printers and they all have no problems printing from both landscape and portrait.
The printers having the problems are all the same make and model (Brother HL6050).
I've tried changing the emulation settings etc but with no joy (it's currently set at auto (epson), but have tried hp and all the other options).
I've tried just abouit everything I can think of from the manual but still with no joy.
