    Xerox printer banners on Solaris

    Locked

    by why ·

    Can anyone give the magic incantation to switch off the print banner page generated by the Xerox printing software on Solaris 2.6

    xpadmin (ver 3.01.23) shows “banner page disabled”

    lpstat -lp shows “banner not required” for both the print and transport devices

    lp -oNoBanner makes no difference

    I’d like to save some trees …

      1. become root
      2. cd to /usr/lib/lp/model
      3. make a copy of the file ‘standard’: call it ‘nobanner’
      4. edit the nobanner file: find the line ‘nobanner=”no”, and change it to
      ‘nobanner=”yes”‘
      5. assign the new interface file to your printer:

      lpadmin -p your-printer-name -i /usr/lib/lp/model/nobanner

      If you use NeWSprint:

      Edit /etc/lp/printers//param and make sure the BANNERPS line looks like this:

      BANNERPS=; export BANNERPS

        The Xerox stuff uses its own setup. Its interface file twiddles a few options and then invokes another program. No obvious parameter files there.

        Solution seems to be replace N2125 with Phaser 4400 – no software changes, no banner.
