FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE #0
I have a HP LaserJet 4000N postscript printer with JetDirect.

I am able to print a text file from the command line

lpr test

cat test
this is a test

this prints perfectly

the problem is when I try to print a graphics file I get garbage and
lots of it.

lpr sm_logo.png

I have changed auto to raw but same effect.

What must I do?


lp|hp:|HP LaserJet 4000N:\

lpc status all
        queuing is enabled
        printing is enabled
        no entries in spool area
        printer idle
