Troubleshooting
This chapter provides troubleshooting tips for some problems that may arise when
performing the procedures in this manual.
Troubleshooting
On a Windows computer
Setting up IPX (Novell) printing for Windows NT Workstation
If you have problems installing the Fiery XJ with Windows NT, try installing another
PostScript printer (such as the Apple LaserWriter IIg), and then install the Fiery XJ.
Installing another printer insures that all files are properly installed and available. For
instructions, see your Windows NT documentation.
Installing the Adobe PostScript Printer Driver
If you are reinstalling the Adobe PostScript Printer Driver, delete any previous versions
and related files before installing. Search for and delete all files named Efxx*.* in the
Windows\System folder and the Windows\System\Color folder. See the Adobe
README file included with the printer driver for more information.
Problems with the Fiery utilities on Windows 95 or Windows NT
1.
If you are using Windows 95, make sure that IPX/SPX and TCP/IP networking protocols
are both enabled.
See “Completing the Windows 95 IPX/SPX or IPX (Novell) connection” on page 10.
2.
Make sure that the connection is configured correctly for your site.
To check the current configuration, launch a Fiery utility and choose Open from the
File menu. Select the Fiery XJ and click Modify to see current settings. If the settings
are incorrect, you can change them in this dialog box.
68
Troubleshooting
On a Mac OS computer
Setting up the Fiery XJ in the Chooser
If auto-setup does not work and you are prompted to select the PPD, select the
Fiery XJ file in your System Folder:Extensions:Printer Descriptions folder.
Select “Fiery XJ DocuColor 40 Color Server v5.0.”
Installing screen fonts
If you experience problems installing the PostScript screen fonts from the User
Software CD to the System Folder:Fonts folder, try the following:
1.
Quit all applications and close all windows.
2.
Create a new folder and name it “Uninstalled Fonts.”
This folder must be located outside of the System Folder.
3.
Move fonts that you are not using from the System Folder:Fonts folder to the
Uninstalled Fonts folder.
4.
Continue to copy fonts from the User Software CD to the System Folder:Fonts folder.
5.
Create an alias to the System Folder:Fonts folder and to the Uninstalled Fonts folder.
6.
Place both aliases on your desktop.
7.
When necessary, use the aliases to open both folders and move fonts between them.
If you have any applications running, you must quit and relaunch them in order to
view and use the newly installed fonts.
Alternately, you can try combining fonts from multiple suitcases into a single suitcase.
