[Solved] Print again produces character garbage (Brother)

Postby taron » Sat Feb 13, 2010 2:06 pm

Printing a document out of OOWriter 3.1.0 with my Brother HL5069D Laser Printer with driver BR-Script3 under CUPS in a Debian/GNU Linux i586 is fine. Repeating the print produces garbage of characters "F42 )-rG" with apparently kerning errors. Frames, lines and positioning is as on the first print out. Printer switch off/on helps, also intermediate print over parallel port from Win98. Printing many copies with single print command is fine. Printing via Kwrite, and other progs produced no error. The document was imported from a Word2000 document 2x5 business cards.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Perhaps the latest official version (3.2) could help: [Ubuntu] Installing OOo on Debian and Co. Try also to reset your OOo user profile but don't transfer your personal data during the welcome process (if you had 2.x before), configuration files from the former version might corrupt the new profile.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
AOO 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 20.04 and 4.1.5 on Windows 10 (with winPenPack port).

Finally, I found a workaround for the problem printing twice gives garbage:
I added a cups filter command in the respective ppd.
This filter (a simple shell script using sed) adds the following lines in the PJL-header of the print file
@PJL ENTER LANGUAGE PCL
<esc>%-12345X@PJL
thereby changing emulation to PCL, folleowed by usual code for PS.
