    Ok, the printer is configured to accept PCL 6. So, I assume that you're using a PCL driver? Is this the vendor-supplied driver, or an openprinting driver? I assumed from your first post that KPDL (PostScript) was being used, and the output snippet you shared looked like PS code being printed (as opposed to the document expected).

    For troubleshooting, I can only offer general advice. I don't own such hardware. These may be helpful to you.

    Yes. - But it seems to be only an ordinary PPD file.

    or an openprinting driver?
    No. - Can the support become better by information from the OpenPrinting database?
    My model is not provided by the package “OpenPrintingPPDs-postscript 4.0.0.2-4.1”.

    I assumed from your first post that KPDL (PostScript) was being used,
    Code:
    …
    *FileVersion: "8.1308"
    …
    *PSVersion: "(3011.103) 1"
    …
    *NickName: "Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn (KPDL)"
    
    *PCFileName: "KC5150EG.PPD"
    …
    and the output snippet you shared looked like PS code being printed (as opposed to the document expected).
    Do I need to trigger any more questionable “printer resets” for the desired outputs?

    It seems that that my printing surprises can eventually still continue also with an available software alternative.

    Code:
    …
    *FileVersion: "8.4511"
    …
    *PCFileName: "KC5150EE.PPD"
    …

    How would you interpret another unexpected output like the following after an attempt for a version update?

    Code:
    Error Name:          /undefined
    Offending Command:   Pages:

    1) What happens if you set KPDL emulation explicitly in the printer?

    2) The printer model may not be explicitly supported, but using generic PCL 6 or PS configuration should be compatible IMO.

    3) If none of the suggestion given in the link I provided work for you, then consider submitting a bug report I guess.

    I switched to this setting yesterday.

    I imagine that the current value will not matter there if the submitted print jobs will adjust such a parameter already to their needs.

    This model is supported to some degree. I have got an impression that the corresponding software quality is questionable once more.


    3) If none of the suggestion given in the link I provided work for you, then consider submitting a bug report I guess.
    I am curious on how the involved software developers (or product maintainers) can and will care for remaining issues at all.

    Since you're using a vendor-supplied driver, perhaps worth contacting Kyocera for the required support.

    I would like to be a bit more sure on how the printer software can be still questionable also in my use case.

    Are there any chances that an other “PostScript Printer Description” will work better for my needs?

    This would be generally possible.

    Expectations for a nicer product lifecycle might not fit together.


    The effectiveness in achieving improvements is also varying in affected areas.

    Don't know - it's something that you'll have to try for yourself.

    Will other discussion places help more to share corresponding experiences for better PostScript printer descriptions?
