Description Tim Waugh 2007-06-14 08:57:25 UTC
Description of problem:
The PPDs foomatic creates for printers where no margin information is known are
too optimistic with their ImageableArea settings.  They should use conservative
guesses (say, ½" border all round) in that case.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
foomatic-3.0.2-47.fc7

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. foomatic-ppdfile -p Epson-Stylus_D68 -d gutenprint-ijs.5.0 | grep ImageableArea
  
Actual results:
0-margins

Expected results:
36-margins, for example

Comment 5 Till Kamppeter 2007-08-21 19:07:12 UTC
I have fixed this upstream now in the foomatic-db-engine package (BZR
repositories). Now the default margins are 12/inch at top and bottom and 1/4
inch at the left and right.
