Description of problem:
system-config-printer ignores the Imageable Area in the Queue options,
I tried to change the Imageable Area for a HP-LaserJet but the values
inside the PPD (*ImageableArea) start always from (for A4) 0 0 to 595
842, when I change the *ImageableArea in the PPD manually then cups
prints the pages correct. Try for example "kedit" and print a simple
document, all lines on the left start to early because the
*ImageableArea in the PPD for the left side is 0 no matter what you
add in the system-config-printer tool.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change the Imageable Area with system-config-printer
2. Start "kedit" and print a document
Actual Results: You will see that all lines start to early on the
left side because system-config-printer ignores the Imageable Area in
the Queue options.
Expected Results: system-config-printer should set the Imageable Area
in the PPD file correct.
I think this is caused by foomatic already providing margins for that model.
Needs a way of knowing when to override those.
system-config-printer in version 0.6.116.1-1 for FC3 has still the
problem, this way system-config-printer is of limited use.
Fixed in CVS.
