View Full Version : [SOLVED] hp 2015 prints blank pages in Precise

Here's a head scratcher -

After a flawless upgrade to 12.04 my previously fully working hp 2015 printer now "prints" blank pages on a print job (i.e. makes all the right noises, emits right number of pages etc but result is blank sheets)

BUT: printing from gedit is perfect +every time+, printing from Libreoffice and the rest is blank pages. Narrows down the problem you'd think - but where to go from here?

BTW: printing to another printer from the same precise system OK; of course if gedit can print ok, hardware chain fine; if I change the driver it will print just 1 (one) job then revert to blank pages until I change the driver again - its sending me nuts!

OK - mystery solved, after a fashion. Seems that I was using draft mode and the driver takes this to mean don't even put toner to paper, so blank page. Moving to normal print quality gives draft, best gives normal.

Ho hum.
