RE: [SLUG] lpr with JetDirect and Laser Jet (only one copy printe d)


Oops, hate it when I hit `reply` and not `reply all`, in a damn rush...

As below, it appears that this happens in both RH 6.1 and 6.2 and yet
reversing the options tends to make it work.

Well, funny enough I had the same problem under RH 6.1.

Though when I reversed the switches `lpr -#3 -Pprinter blahblah.txt`, it
worked but on the first page it stripped out the last line...

It may work for you though...

We are only getting one copy printed when we give the command:

lpr -Pprintername -#3 filename

(RedHat 6.2 with all updates)

any suggestions as to the reason??
