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.

Re: cannot print from qfaxreader
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.

cannot print from qfaxreader
Hi, i'm having a big trouble trying to print from qfaxreader. i cannot do it.

it shows the printers listed, but it just not prints. any other app prints ok.

i'm using cups, xfce4 (gtk2 based), have just another kde app and it works ok. so any help would be appreciated

Thanks for this tool
