Here are some unified diffs to correct a problem in ipp (ipp.c) which
prevents the total page count ever being obtained from a printer and
passed on to the scheduler. This now works with Lexmark laser printers,
but there is an additional problem (which I haven't finished
investigating) with HP laser printers. I hope to be able to submit further
I've set reporting priority to 'High', as for our use correct total page
counting is crucially important. Nevertheless, we can still print.
I also need to check that the correct partial-job page count is returned
if a printer error occurs part way through the job; a favourite method of
users to get printing for free is to place a deliberate error on an extra
page at the end of their spooled document in the hope that this will cause
the total page count "0" to be returned!
