I wanted to print something but my HP Laserjet 1200 printer gave me this error printed out:

PCL XL error  
    Subsystem: KERNEL  
    Error:     IllegalTag  
    Operator:  0x34  
    Position:  114307

Last time I tried to print something, everything worked fine.

I use Linux Mint 10, with KDE4.6. My printer driver is included in the HPLIP package for Ubuntu.

After a bit research on the web, I have found that this is quite a common error for HP printers but I can only find solutions for Windows.

Does anyone know how I can get it working?
