    Hello,

    In my scenario problem is :  Users are not able to print (SAP-ALV & SAP-Customized report) from Linux on USB local printer.

    SOLUTION :- Here is the solution for SAP printing in Linux on local USB printer :-

    STEPS :-

    1.   Run T-Code-SPAD

    2.  Create New Printer--> Add Printer name-eg.: HPLJ

    3.  Got to Utilities >> For Device Type >>Import

         Select  Device Type Radio button

    4.  Import--(Download & Add new.PRI file for your Printer--like for HP-M40--     printer:HPM401.PRI(Config File for HP-printing).

    5.  Select Local package

    6. Select Device Type: POST2   : PS lv.2 ISO Latin R4.54A+ONLY!

    7. Access Method : G:Front end printing with Control Tech.

    8. Fill the Host printer column with :-  __DEFAULT

    9.  New printer is configured.

    For assigning printer to the user in Linux :-

    STEPS :-

    1.T-Code SU01

    2. Select user: Open in Edit Mode.

    3. Go to "Default" tab: Select New printer(which you add for Linux..)

    4. Save the User

    5. Print the document.

    RESULT :  SAP-Linux users with having local USB printers as well as Network Shared printers are able to print the report(SAP-ALV and SAP-Customized report) with proper format.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello,

    Some users are complaining that SAP prints blank pages(25-30 pages),written some alphanumeric characters in a single line when they give print of any document.

    Some times it gives proper printing after restarting the computer.

    But this problem increases everyday..!!!

    Please reply...

    Hello Junaid,

    do I understand correctly that printing the one and same spool request from transaction SP01 the output on Windows will be fine and the problem only happens on Linux?

    If yes, please attach the properties of the Output Device (e.g. access method, device type) as screenshots.

    Best regards,
