View Full Version : [ubuntu] CUPS slow printing + XPP Config

August 18th, 2008, 07:09 PM
Hi guys,

I'm currently using a HP 1020 Laserjet for printing via CUPS.

I did it via foomatic, and it actually runs okay. However, it takes like 15 minutes to print a pdf file, especially if the file size is above 5 mb and so on. CPU usage goes way up too.

Is there anyway to fix this? If not, is there any other alternative to printing in Ubuntu other than CUPS?

In another issue, I tried using XPP to solve Evince's problematic printing with regards to multiple pages on one sheet.

However, XPP doesn't really listen to the settings. I tried setting it from page 2 to page 45, 4 sheets per page.

It printed page5 5 to 45, 4 sheets per page. I tried setting to page 2, 3, 4 and 5; but it printed 5 to 45 anyway.

Help me, please. :(
