Description JM 2004-09-30 13:20:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040924

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):

How reproducible:

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.
Comment 2 JM 2005-02-02 07:04:10 EST
system-config-printer in version for FC3 has still the
problem, this way system-config-printer is of limited use.
