I have a new router (Speedport W 921V) which has USB ports on which I connected my printer (HP DeskJet 950C).

Printing works (URI: lpd://, but after each job, the printer sucks out one extra blank page.

How can avoid this extra non printed page?

(I'm using Xubuntu 11.10 and hplip 3.11.7-1ubuntu3. If the printer is connected to the PC directly or via a Windows computer (samba), the problem doesn't occur.)

  • Xubuntu 11.10 and hplip 3.11.7-1ubuntu3. According to wiki.linuxfoundation.org/en/OpenPrinting/Database/… , I also tried to set ps_accounting = 0 in /etc/foomatic/filter.conf, no effect. (/usr/lib/cups/filter/cupsomatic is not a readable file) – Bazon Dec 8 '11 at 15:12
  • IPP instead of LDP doesn't work at all. – Bazon Dec 9 '11 at 14:01
  • lpd:// same as before, job ends with one blank page lpd:// doesn't print, error message: /usr/lib/cups/backend/lpd failed – Bazon Dec 9 '11 at 15:41
  • when setting up the 950c you have a choice of 6 drivers - does any of the others (i.e. not the recommended driver) work better? – fossfreedom Dec 10 '11 at 23:04

Try adding this option at the bottom of /etc/printcap

  • No effect. (I did that and restarted cups afterwards with sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart ) – Bazon Dec 9 '11 at 14:01
