I have a couple of problems with the CUPS printing system I can't seem to
sort out and wondered if anyone could help.

I am running cups as the printer daemon under Suse 8.0.  Rpm -q cups
reveals version 1.1.12-69 is installed.

Two problems:

1) It keeps printing a blank page after every print job.  It was fine under
    Suse 7.2, but upgrade to Suse 8.0 introduced this problem.  Also a new
    install of Suse 8.0 on a new machine has same problem.  All banner pages
    are switched off.  Maybe a trailing ctrl-D type problem (we are printing
    to a HP postscript laserjet) - but I can't find anything in the
    configuration to switch it off.

2) How does one turn on the accounting information (or the page_log as cups
    calls it).  Setting the PageLog variable in the cupsd.conf file does
    nothing. Touching /var/log/cups/page_log (where it is 'sposed to write
    the page_log file) doesn't help (anyway, it was just a long shot guess
    that maybe it only wrote the file if the file existed).  Any suggestions
    as to how the page log accounting can be turned on?
