OL 400e: gimp-print-ijs imageable is better then recommended ljet2p
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:02 EST
Description of problem:
On an Okidata OL 400e, gimp-print-ijs imageable is better then the recommended
ljet2p... While ljet2p tries to print outside the margins (top, left, right
lines of CUPS test page don't appear), gimp-print-ijs prints those border lines
correctly. Dithering of the color wheel and font printing however seems to be
"slightly" (subjective) better under ljet2p.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[there is a system-config-printer component but no system-config-printer-gui?]
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure windows shared okidata OL 400e
2. use "recommended" ljet2p
3. print test page
top, left, right border lines and top of string "Printer Test Page" not printed
correctly printed page
= gimp-print-ijs Imageable Area =
Page Size: 8.0x10.67in
= ljet2p Imageable Area =
Page Size: 8.17x10.67in
Fixed upstream. Thanks for the report.
Thanks for the fix on Foomatic. I have rebuilt the linuxprinting.org web site
now, to make the change visible there.
