I've been trying to get my photo printer working recently, and seem to
run into a bit of a snag.  I just tried to print out a picture as a
and instead of a picture, I got: PCL commands across the top of one page
photo paper, and the printer spewed the rest of my paper out empty
me an important lesson about testing without having large quantities of
photo paper in the printer...)
Anyway, I was looking on google, and I don't seem to see other people
this problem, but I'm not sure what I could've done wrong.  I'm using
hpijs driver, which is supposed to work perfectly under linux, and works
perfectly for my other hp printer.  Is this printer just not supported
FreeBSD?  I couldn't find anything that stated directly either way in my
quick googling, so I was hoping somebody here might have some ideas for
things to check, etc.

Maybe it could help if you explain exactly how do you print the
file, from command line or from some kind of application?
The PCL across the top of one page, does it looks like stairs?
I.e. does start the 2nd line where 1st line ends?


Ok.  Let's see what other information I can provide.

I was printing from the gimp.  I looked at the printer setup, and it said
that it was using lpr.
As for the PCL, the first line was pretty short, and the second line did
start indented.  I don't recall if it started where the first ended, but if
not, it was close to that.  I couldn't see any further lines, but apparently
there were more, as the printer kept spitting out pages...


That is a probably a Gimp problem. You have to configure printing on Gimp before you start printing. What kind of ps filter does Gimp use? What happens when you manually pass your image through a2ps filter and try to print that ps file. Do you still have bad image?
