Hi there !
I have a Kyocera FS-820, I can print with it via CUPS, everything OK ... but ! Everytime I print a page, the same thing print, I can't get the good output. Here, what appear on the top of the page:
%!PS-Adobe-3.0 %RBINumCopies: 1 %%Pages: (attend) %%BoundingBox: 0 0 612 792 [...]
If I do a Test Page via CUPS WebInterface, I get that, if I print a web page, I get the same output ... any idea what might be my problem ?
I had a client who had a kyocera (cannot remember the model) and I was never able to get it to work properly. You could try looking here:
I tried first with the PPD from Kyocera install CD (which is said to support Linux, and by two ways ... and both don't give any results). And after that, I tried the PPD from LinuxPrinting, but with the same result ... So it haven't help me :-(
I solved the problem ! I used the "ljet3" driver instead of the "PostScript" driver on LinuxPrinting.org:
http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_print … era-FS-850
If someone encounter the problem, all you have to do, is download the ljet3 PPD file, copy it to /usr/share/cups/model/kyocera-ljet3.ppd as root, give it permission 644 and then execute:
lpadmin -p Kyocera -v usb:/dev/usb/lp0 -m kyocera-ljet3.ppd
-p Kyocera is the printer name, you can change it, and in my case, it was on a USB port. Hope it will help someone !
Have a nice day !
And if you want a 600dpi resolution with the "ljet3" PPD, and that is probably the case since this printer support it, just edit the file by finding the following line:
*Resolution 300x300dpi/300 DPI: "<</HWResolution[300 300]>>setpagedevice"
And add under it this:
*Resolution 600x600dpi/600 DPI: "<</HWResolution[600 600]>>setpagedevice"
And once the printer is added, just change the configuration and set the DPI to 600 instead of 300.
Have a nice day !
