Description Tim Wegener 2007-01-16 18:09:44 EST
Description of problem:
Printing a photo from KView using postcard sized photo paper on an HP Photosmart
C4180 All-in-One printer results in poor quality and borders.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups-1.2.7-1.5.fc6
hplip-1.6.10-1.fc6.4
foomatic-3.0.2-39.1.fc6
kdegraphics-3.5.5-0.1.fc6.i386.rpm
kdelibs-3.5.5-0.2.fc6.i386.rpm

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Actions:
1. kview
2. Load a photo
3. File->Print
4. Image Settings-> Fit image and center image checked
5. Properties
6. General-> Orientation:Landscape Page Size:Photo/6x4 inch index card
7. Margins-> Use custom margins (all 0)
8. OK
9. Print
  
Actual results:
This prints with borders (top:3mm bot:3mm right:9mm left:8mm) despite manually
setting margins to 0, and very poor quality (obvious pixellation/aliasing and
dithering). The quality is much worse than using the printer in stand-alone mode
printing from a memory card.

Expected results:
Borderless photo to printed with same quality as when using the printer in
stand-alone mode, printing from a memory card.
