I have the same problems with my HP990cxi printer than FIB already described earlier:
Text is only printed partly (the first lines on a page and the last on another page).
I tried the fix given by Oleg:
p910nd -f /dev/usb/lp0 0
But it has no positive effect for me (FIB has more luck!). I think the fix is directed only to USB printers (Is this correct Oleg?) and unfortunately I am using the parallell interface to connect the HP990cxi (the USB is used for the external disk).
Has Oleg also a fix for the parallell printer interface ?It would be great because CR4 was working very well with my printer (with RAW option), and otherwise CR5 seems to be a good improvement step. It would be a pity to have to go back to CR4 in order to be able to use the print server again. Thanks in advance for every help with this problem.
Additional Remark: Concerning the introduced bidirectional functionality of the interface in CR5: the information of the printer is not detected by my Windows XP Pro system and the HP990cxi drivers and utilities.
So I think that the new function is not useful at this state (for me, with my HP990cxi...).
Last remark: The work of the developers in this forum is great ! As a Linux newbie I am only able to be a very pleased user of this superb work. I appreciate very much !
