Yes, the "musical note", hex value 0d, shows clearly, it exists at the end of all the hplip.conf lines.
Removed using kon and saved modified file.

That's actually a form feed (FF) rather then line ending character. Always a good idea to look with a hex editor.

Hi Dave

Yes, I stand corrected - although it is usually found towards the end of the line  :-)

Certainly worth remembering to look at data and .conf files ported from *nix using a hex editor if ported software is known to work but does not when unzipped/installed on a system. In this case it would have prevented a lot of "circular tail chasing"  ;-)


Regards

Pete

No need to send any logs, just glad it helped diagnose the problem!

Cheers,

Actually, 0X0D = 13 is Carriage Return. Form Feed is 0X0C = 12.
