After creating the printer, almost all prints came up with an annoying banner. This is quite urgent as Finance needs to print checks.

In our case we're printing from Oracle Financial applications. When I tested direct printing from unix, it's also printing banners.
Our configuration is like this, from Unix it will go to our print server, then to Ricoh printer. Where will I configure? I change the entry "lp" to "lp -onobanner" in the $ORACLE_HOME/reports60/admin/printer/spoolcmd.sh file, but no luck.

What I did was to remove banner printing for each printers:
chown lp:lp *

Additional info :-
If you are using remote printers and the lp scheduler you need to tackle this at source rather than from the print server.
Try swapping the -onobanner for :-
In you application software you may be able to configure a queue to use the unix lpd queue and assign the -oBSDh flag then.
This would have the benefit of removing the banner as soon as the application has generated the printed job, and before it reaches the prinserver or the ricoh.

Actually I like to tackle this at source for all print jobs, so that I don't have to update each printer file at /var/spool/lp/interface.
How do I do this on Oracle Applications 11i reports? By the way I can't find "-onobanner" in unix, or should this be done on the Oracle side?
