I would be interested to correspond off the list with someone who is
using the HP6L printer with cups and star office 5.2 (currently i am
running this on solaris8 but plan to do it on linux too). I have got it
all working but having some problems with margins which i am not sure if
it is in the pdd file or something in the SO setup.

HP6L these have not beeen recalled but HP website are offering a free

the sheet feeder and makes it feed one page at a time into the printer.
The glue had dried out when mine arrived from frankfurt but i made it
work with superglue :) Go to and drill down to:
