Description of problem:
In the most recent gimp-print stable release, 4.2.6, support for the
Epson C63/C64/C83/C84 was added.  Unfortunately, there is a paper
alignment bug for these printers.  More unfortuately, I own a C84, as
do many others.  These are currently the available non-photo printers
from Epson, and so are quite popular.

Robert Krawitz, the maintainer of gimp-print, has proposed an
emergency fix which disables the full-bleed support of these printers,
but restores proper alignment (a true fix will appear in 4.2.7, and
5.0.0-alpha1 is not affected):


To quote he says:

If you want an emergency fix, search src/main/print-escp2-data.c and
search for"C84" or "C64" respectively (these are the last two entries
in the file), and change MODEL_XZEROMARGIN_YES to
MODEL_XZEROMARGIN_NO.  This will, of course, work only for people who
are building from source.

Any distribution vendors who are reading this, I urge you to make this
change. This will disable full-bleed printing for these printers.  The
actual fix will be a bit different; we'll change the zero margin offset.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Print CUPS test page with Epson C84 and gimp-print-4.2.6

Actual Results:  The page isn't aligned correctly.  The left margin is
about 1cm off

Expected Results:  A perfect print!
