Description of problem:
My Okidata OL600ex, using the Ghostscript ljet2p driver, needs special
Margins and .HWMargins definitions in order to place the text where it
ought to be.
I have been using the linuxprinting.org alignmargins + align.ps for
this with great success earlier on my RH 7.3 install.
However, after upgrading to Yarrow, redhat-config-printer regenerates
the CUPS configuration (including .ppd files) each time the cups
The Custom Margin configuration which alignmargins creates is then
Ideally, I would like a similar functionality implemented from within
redhat-config-printer (possibly with more intuitive instructions than
those from align.ps).
In addition, it should be possible to register this in the printer
database, so that others can benefit from my experience with this printer.
If redhat-config-printer already supports this, there certainly lacks
some documentation about the matter.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run alignmargins
2. service cups restart
3. Margins lost
Actual Results: The Margins configuration is reset to default values.
Expected Results: The Margins configuration should be retained.

Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
In FC6 CUPS configuration will no longer be generated from separate
configuration files; instead CUPS is configured directly.
