[kubuntu] HP LaserJet 5mp setup

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an old but still reliable HP LaserJet 5 with a duplexing unit and the Postscript option. Until several months ago it was working just fine under Kubuntu. But at some point, which I can't pin down, the drivers no longer seemed able to handle the options. The printer does still work, however. I'm running Kubuntu Natty, fully updated. I have two problems. First, when I send a job to the printer it doesn't print immediately. Instead, the printer's status display flashes the message "DATA RECEIVED". I need to press the GO button to have printing actually take place. Seco (Hardware)
