Laserjet 5SiMx. Hewlett Packard sold several billions of these
things. OK, that was an exaggeration. But they are extremely
common as workgroup printers in corporate offices. In fact, it would
not surprise me if it was in the top five in total number of printers
sold in all history of laser printing. That's why I am surprised that
Linux has problems printing to it.

11x17 is not listed anywhere in CUPS or in any Scribus print dialog
box. And both CUPS and the Scribus paper size box list all kinds
of sizes and dimensions that I have never heard of, and which are
not supported by this printer. (It does just US letter, legal, 11x17
and European A3 and A4, plus various envelope sizes.)
If I print from OO.o I get a proper listing of paper sizes.

There is only one driver available for this printer. It is a genuine
Adobe PostScript level 2 printer. The PPD file is properly installed
(as far as I know).
Thanks for the suggestions.
