Bug Description

Binary package hint: ptouch-driver

Setting the "advance distance", "advance media" and "auto cut" options has no effect whatsoever.

This is a QL-560 printer, current Maverick. Tried "lpr -o ..." as well as editing the defaults.

Apparently, the code "ESC i A \001" needs to be sent before cutting happens.

Thank you for the patch.

Are you sure that this patch also works for other models and does not break anything with them?

This is an upstream bug (a bug of the software itself and not of Ubuntu's packaging). I will put the patch into the Maverick package of ptouch-driver, but can you also inform the upstream author of the driver and send him your patch, too?

I've also got a QL-500 which doesn't get confused by this command. No idea what any other printers do.

Anyway, I'm a member of core-dev myself (even if I haven't exactly been active for a while – much too busy with family and for-pay work), so you might assume that I know what "upstream" means. :-P

Upstream said the patch is OK, but he's busy so it'll be a while.

Great, thank you for upstreamizing the patch. Did not know that you are core-dev, probably due to your inactivity. I did the Ubuntu part now, by applying the patch to the Maverick package.
