lp5250d cvs latest - problem switching outqueues


Folks-

I'm having a bit of a problem with the latest cvs version and suse 9.1
using cups.

When I start the lp5250d daemon to an outq on the as/400, I can print fine.
However, if I would like to move the writer to another outq with the
command 'chgwtr eeprn001 tlxlib/ina' the writer moves to the new outq,
processes the files, but I do not get any output to the printer, event
though the process manager shows that lp5250d, lpr and cups are doing their
job i.e. processing data.

previously I was using the latest release on redhat enterprise server 2,
and this worked fine, but the release was not compiling correctly on suse.

anybody have any ideas?

thanks

Elmars Ositis

re: lp5250d cvs latest - problem switching outqueues


Update on the lp5250d issue

I have fixed the compile of the 16.5 version on suse 9.1. A diff with the
cvs version of tn5250.c showed that a \ was missing on line 181.

However the ''chgwtr'' issue remains the same. when the writer prints from
a different queue, there is no output to printer, even though it appears
that data processing takes place...

re: lp5250d cvs latest - problem switching outqueues - resolution


Hmm... seems everyone is on vacation... anyway I finally found the solution
to this cups issue.

For some reason printing does not work properly if the -l ( that is the
lower case letter L! )option is not given for the lpr command. To get
printing working fine, the outputcommand statement must be as follows:

scs2ascii | lpr -h -l -Pprintername

the same is true for scs2ps. with scs2ps and ibmmfrtypmdl=*hp4 the printer
only prints the header for each page, and dumps the rest of the content if
the -l is not used. bit annoying that. The -h is needed to suppress header
pages which cups also insists on printing....

cheers, and welcome back from vacation!

x5250 - ready for use?

Hi James,

Do you think that your "child" is ready for use in production? I am 
preparing new thin client setup for our tn5250 users (ca. 150 souls) and 
wonder if I should give x5250 a try. What you think?

Best regards

Marek Bajon

I use it all day everyday.  I know of others who do as well.  However, it 
isn't perfect.  Some things aren't quite ready yet.  There is still some 
flickering that can be annoying.  And occasionally events get out of sync 
(though this hasn't happened to me for a long time so it might be fixed). 
If you need rock solid emulation I would stick to tn5250 (or it's semi-X 
cousin xt5250).  But I would like it if you tried x5250 on a few machines 
and let me know what problems you run into.
