I've got a network with 2 windows XP machines, one with a printer attached and one UBUNTU laptop. After much struggling I got it to print a test page, one line with the word test on it. Worked great, thought I had it working until I tried printing a full page document. The doc gets held, and when I release it it prints out the first couple of lines and then a few lines of what appears to be settings of some sort, that start with @PJL.
Any ideas?

I just tried the test page from System/admin/printer and it worked fine. Maybe its open office?
