RE: Cups crap

With FC1 my HP Color LaserJet 4500 and 4550 just worked right out of the box, nothing to really do.  In FC2 so far all I get is blank pages when I try to print from any application.  Since I know it worked in FC1, what happened here?

I am having no problems with my HP LJ4 in Cups. I have the postscript L2
simm installed and maxed out memory for the rest - and use a JetDirect
card to print to it. I only print from the big 500 sheet drawer, never
tried one of the other sources.

I do not know what your specific problem is.
Are you connected via JetDirect or Parallel or other?

I'm not a CUPS expert - just someone for whom it works OOB with FC2 and
