Hello Linux God!
If you are there... just help me,
coz I'm going crazy with my printer,
and i'm thinking of imigration
from x-ubuntu to Debian.

Does any body knows, what is
going on with my printer?!! (LOL)

Some details would be nice.

Printer. Make? Model?

Has it worked before? Are you trying to do a new install?

Let's go then...

I got X-Ubuntu Dingo on the Disco, then I go HP LaserJet 1010 with a brand new ink toner. I download Hp Linux Imaging & Printing and install all stuff. And finally every time I am trying to print anything, my printer's printing me jock like this:

PCL XL error
Subsystem: KERMIT
Error: IllegalTag
Operator: 0x1b
Position: 8

How about that?

Good Clue.
I mean to turn on this... http://localhost:631/
Now I'm testing different drivers, but
until now, the output of every single page
I am trying to print is the same:

PCL XL error
Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: IllegalTag
Operator: 0x1b
Position: 8

Any other clues?

Look. From what I see, i am thinking that it is not a problem of drivers.
Any driver I switch on, and any adjustments of printer (in options) I
perform... the result is all the same. You already know what.

Maybe it is a matter of CUP! Maybe I need some newer Phyton version,
maybe I need to re-install CUP server. Can you give me some clue with
that?

What will I do?

In Add Printer (section in localhost:631/admin) I got:

HP LaserJet 1010-CUPS+Gutenprint v5.3.1 (en)
HP LaserJet 1010 hpijs, 3.19.1 (en)
HP LaserJet 1010, hpcups 3.19.1 (en)
HP LaserJet 1010, hpcups 3.19.1 (en)
HP LaserJet 1010, hpcups 3.19.8 (en)
HP LaserJet 1010, hpcups 3.19.1 (en, en)
...the same pack of "drivers" I go to 1012 moedel.

What should I do? What driver is correct?

When dis you do an update/upgrade?

Quite often there are different versions of HPLIP - from Repository and from HP. Sometimes one works better than the other.
