try altering the lp0 queue (with the redhat-config-printer tool) and
changing the Resolution back to 300 (the default)?
I get a blank page on a Samsung ML-1750 set up as PCL6 (recommended
driver) (except for a file ID footer) from Kwrite. However, printing
to the same printer with the same file from gedit creates a properly
