I had tried that, thanks. I tried again just to be sure and it's still
not working. I submitted a test job from redhat-config-printer and saw
this:

# lpq
Printer: hplj4 olympus
 Queue: no printable jobs in queue
 Server: no server active
 Status: job 'root olympus+25' saved at 13:02:58.969

done   root olympus+25              A    25 /usr/share/printconf 18255
13:02:56

Nothing printing...just sits there...It says it's "done" though...

Hmmm...I just looked in /var/spool/lpd/hplj4 and found the lpq.0 file:
there is an error message in there:

---8<---
Status: IF filter 'mf_wrapper' filter msg - 'error closing *main::STDOUT
at /usr/sbin/lpdomatic line 812, <KID4_IN> line 672.' at 13:02:58.929
---8<---

Is this something to do with it not printing? I can send the rest of the
file if needs be. (Sorry, I'm not very good at printing).

Here's my printcap. It's autogenerated by redhat-config-printer:

hplj4:\
        :ml#0:\
        :mx#0:\
        :sd=/var/spool/lpd/hplj4:\
        :af=/var/spool/lpd/hplj4/hplj4.acct:\
        :sh:\
        :lp=/dev/lp0:\
        :lpd_bounce=true:\
        :if=/usr/share/printconf/util/mf_wrapper:


# service lpd status
lpd (pid 17787) is running...
# ps -elf | grep lpd
040 S lp       17787     1  0  75   0    -  1250 schedu 00:35 ?

What does 'lpd Waiting' mean (above)? Is that normal?

# lsmod

lp                      8996   0  (autoclean)
parport                37152   1  (autoclean) [parport_pc lp]

thanks for you help BTW.

You know you've been sitting in front of your Lisp machine too long when
you go out to the junk food machine and start wondering how to make it
give you the CADR of Item H so you can get that yummie chocolate cupcake
that's stuck behind the disgusting vanilla one.
