View Full Version : [ubuntu] 11.10 Oneiric >> HP LaserJet 1200 stopped working

January 19th, 2012, 01:27 AM
After installing 11.10 Oneiric, HP LaserJet 1200 will no longer work properly. It worked (most of the time) with my previous Ubuntu installations. I have seen similar threads. But not sure where best to post my issue. Here is a brief description:

The printer is recognised just fine. System Settings > Printing; HP-LaserJet-1200 icon is visible; clicking brings up properties dialog. If I click "Print Test Page", Printer State changes from "Idle" > "Processing" > "Idle". Notification appears to say "Printing completed", but the printer does nothing, except flash its green busy light.

Attempting to print LibreOffice writer document: Prints only first page. Status says "idle", but the green light is winking. No more pages appear. Item is no longer shown in the Document Print Status dialog. Notification says "Printing completed".

Try to print from Evince Document Viewer. Prints only
PCL XL error
Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: IllegalTag
Operator: 0x3d
Position: 3119
Notification says "Printing completed"

Try again. Printer State changes very briefly to "Processing", then back to "Idle". Nothing printed. Notification says "Printing completed."

Try to print from plain text file using gedit. Nothing printed. Notification says "Printing completed."

As far as I can tell, printing has completely broken with the installation

If someone could let me know where to pursue this, I would be very grateful.
