I installed an HP LaserJet 1150 printer as a PCL5 Compatible printer. This same printer works as a PCL5 printer on XP, Vista, Ubuntu 10.04LTS, PC-BSD 8.2 and Mac OSX 10.4. On all of those setups, once the printer driver has been install, as soon as a print job is sent the printer lights start to blink, the printer starts warming up and gets into action, even if the print job does not print. On Haiku, the the printer never starts to warn up, no blinking light, no action. I can only conclude that the printer never receives an actual print job.
You can see the Printers preflet working and 'prcesseing' a job, but the printer itself never warns up, even when clicking the "Print test page" button.
