2.06-2 Designjet 130 on Fedora core 10

Post by mbunner » Tue Jan 13, 2009 1:10 am

I installed without any problems, then added my HP designjet 130 from TurboPrint Control. When printing a test page, my printer beeps then shuts down. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks -

Hello,

it seems that changes for newer DesignJet printers cause the problem - I will send you a corrected driver by email.

Thanks - that resolved the problem, I can now print! Can you point me to instructions on how to adjust my print margins? The test print and demo page both are printing far off the page on 8-1/2 x 11. Margins in Gimp look fine, resulting print is off the page as well.

Hello,

thank you for testing!

Can you tell me in which way the print is "off" - e.g. "moved by 0.5 inches to the left and by 0.7 inches to the top"?

Looking at the demo print on 8.5x11, it's currently printing about 1.8 inches to the right.

Any updates on this one? How can I adjust my margins to get the print on the page?

Hello,

can you install the new version TurboPrint 2.07-1 and test if the problem persists?

Looking at the printed page right side up, it's still printing about 1.8 inches to the right on both the demo page and test page. The pages come out of the printer upside down, so if I use 11x17 paper the entire print is on the page. I did try creating a custom page under "sizes" using both +1.8 & -1.8 left and it appears to have no impact on the print.

Thanks,
Mark

I sent the log to "mailt (a) turboprint (dt) de" and received:

>><mailt (a) turboprint (dt) de>: host mailin.rzone.de[81.169.145.100]
>> said: 550 5.2.1 Mailbox is blocked (in reply to RCPT TO command)

I resent to "mail (a) zedonet (dt) de" hopefully you got the message, let me know if you didn't.
