Postscript not included
Authored by: james_sorenson on Oct 18, '02 11:41:58AM

Well, this WOULD work for me if I had a poscript card in the HP LaserJet 4+ I'm working with. If you see the print job get sent, but the printer just gives you an error, it's probably because it is a PCL-only printer that does not support postscript printing. I don't know if there is a way around this yet.

For others who can't find the Samba option, read the comments. A person or two have answers for you.

try GhostScript
Authored by: mclbruce on Oct 18, '02 03:39:28PM

Your Mac can convert PostScript to PCL.
Try installing GhostScript and GIMP-print from here:

http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php3

That should work for you.

Postscript not included
Authored by: Dieringer on Oct 19, '02 12:04:29PM

I managed to print to an HP 6L, which doesn't have postscript. You need to install ghostscript. Have you tried that?

I used gimp-print, downloaded a foomatic-created driver and then had to make some changes to cupsomatic (which don't seem to be documented anywhere here). But I think the 4 series already has good ppd files in the cups and gimp-print distributions.

get the 6l to work?
Authored by: whoopy on Apr 06, '03 12:09:25AM

Presently i'm trying to get the hp laserjet 6l to work over the network
while its connect to a win2k machine from a mac.

I tried all sorts of URI formats, different drivers, etc. I keep getting the
"retry in 60 seconds" error.

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Solution to "samba error"

It's all there. I looked around for almost an hour for this.
