Anything crashes on print

Ok this one's driving me nuts and I need help from the forum.

1.5GHz Mini Solo, 2GB RAM, hooked up directly to a brother 1440 laser printer. This printer is also shared on the network.

Print jobs work fine when sent from another computer, through the network. Powerbook, PCs, whatever. But when I try to print something natively, the application crashes.

I suspected a font issue, but this is not a design computer, it basically only has default fonts installed. I tried turning all the user fonts, but that didn't work either.

Tried repairing permissions. Tried cleaning out caches and running maintenence through onyx. Nothing so far has worked.

Ideas? Pleeeeease¿

I know you'd tried replugging the printer on both sides and or changing cables, right?



!#$@@$#!

What if the hokey pokey really is what it’s all about?

Dumped its pref (.plist) files and drivers, and then reinstalled drivers?

I'll try switching cables, but i figured if networked computers can print to it, the cable is probably fine?

i dumped prefs but haven't tried reinstalling drivers... will try that tonight when i get back home.
