Looking for feature that a print job stays in queue until completely printed

Asked by Thomas Bauer on 2018-11-02

Hello,

is there a feature with hplip available that a print job stays in queue until it is completely printed?
If so where and how can we configure that feature?

Before switching to LINUX (SLES 12 SP3) we were using hpnpf to print from HP-UX. With hpnpf the print job stayed in the printer queue until the printer confirmed that the print request was printed! Now we are looking for the same feature, because we have to guarantee that a job is really printed.

Thank you very much for your support.

Best regards
Thomas Bauer

Hello,

did anybody read this question?
As far as I have learned until now querying the status can be done by putting an PJL "Envelope" arround the print request. Can this be done with CUPS / filters or by the backend?
Thank you very much for any reply.

Hello,

according to a PJL document a PJL command USTATUS should be available that takes care, that the printer is tranfering status information.
Does hplip have a feature to react to those status information?
I hplip able to track the status of a print job?

Once again any feedback woul be appreciated.
