Problem of configuration of a queue for the model LEXMARK FORMS PRINTER 2481

Problem of configuration of a queue for the model LEXMARK FORMS PRINTER 2481

Hello, I have problems of configuration of a queue for the following model: LEXMARK FORMS PRINTER 2481. After being created she presents problems on having stamped since in the top part of the leaf characters appear garbage, I suspect that it is a problem of the driver, in hppi the model that I place is the number 35, if someone can help me, Thank you.
The server runs under platform HP-UX 11.23

We use lexmark drivers...

The Lexmark driver package must be installed first.

The file to download from http://drivers.lexmark.com/ is DRIVERS-HPUX1X.PKG.Z

uncompress it then swinstall it.

It will install "Lexmark Enhanced Printer Drivers Package" and "Lexmark Screen Fonts Package". After completion, run: /opt/lexmark/setup.print (use the default of bin for Administrative group, and install fonts as an additional font directory.

Then use lexprt program to add queues.

See Enhanced Printer Drivers for UNIX Systems for more information.

Here's a sample session:

First, you must create the virtual device:

1) Create a virtual device (mklexdev), enter device name (same as queue) then 3) Network connection then accept.

Next, change the Logfile absolute path to (USE Ctrl 8 to backspace!!): /var/adm/lp/.log
where is the queue name.

Second, create the queue by selecting 5) Create a queue (mklexque)

The print queue subsystem must be
shutdown to create the queue.

IBM software on HPUX, yuck...

Other than what is mentioned.

1) YOu could just try a different driver that is already on the server for the printer.

2) extract just the driver(s) from the IBM software package then manually copy the drive instead of throwing a whole nother layer of junk at it. If it was a Windoze machine I am sure you would get some ad-ware and spy-ware installed with the package as an added bonus.


cp new_driver_file /etc/lp/interface/model.orig/myprinter

Thank you for answering, already lower the drivers of the printer of the site www.lexmark.com, install the driver, but I do not have the program lxprt, in addition the folder /opt/lexmark does not exist not before not after the installation of the driver. That I must do?

Thank you

Strange,

/usr/bin/lexprt should be a symbolic link to:

/opt/lexmark/markvision/bin/lexprt
