            It's very probably. QFaxReader include in postscript a

            monochrome image (1bit/per pixel, 8 pixels/byte). I

            known that some HP printers/drivers cannot print this type

            of ps. Try this patch for generating 8bit/pixel:

            Re: cannot print from qfaxreader
            Hi, thanks for your response, forgive me for my late one.

            I've checked on another installation and it worked ok, but with a different printer,

            checked the same installation with the original printer and didn't work.

            the reason couldn't find it. the problem printer is a laserjet1000 which uses a special driver. maybe the qfaxreader produces a ps output that cannot be processed for the driver.

            So i had to go on a "mixed" solution, with kfax i can print some files and with qfaxreader can export the files and then print the exported image... not the right solution but... couldn 't do more.

            i can help you to solve the problem if you have the time.

            thanks anyway for your product is very nice.

            I can't reproduce this behavior. I've tested qfaxreader-0.2.7b on FreeBSD and Fedora Core 2 (printer HP-4000T + CUPS with driver omni-compiled) and it works correctly. But if you have a HP printer and older version of CUPS you can try pxlmono driver. Pls, give me more informations.
