I know Solaris is not Linux but i'm still hoping someone can help me, after all they are both UNIX based
I've added a new printer to a Solaris 8 Server and I can't seem to stop the baner page from appearing with each print job.
The printer in question is called itlaser2, I have tried to turn off banners using lpadmin, lpadmin -p itlaser2 -o banner=never, but it keeps appearing!!!
I can specify nobanner whilst printing, lp -ditlaser2 -onobanner <filename>. However this is not good enough as I don't want the users to be forces to issue this option every time they print a document.
The old Laser Printer, itlaser, works fine, everytime a job is sent to it no banner is produced. Unfortunatly this was setup before my time.
I thought about adding a alias to the users login scripts so the -onobanner is added automatically, alias lp='lp -onobanner'. I would prefer to resolve the issue instead of hiding it though.
Incidentally I've added the same printer to three of out Linux Servers and they print everything without the banner, very annoying.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
