Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 244161
Better ImageableArea default when no margins information available
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. foomatic-ppdfile -p Epson-Stylus_D68 -d gutenprint-ijs.5.0 | grep ImageableArea
36-margins, for example

Fixed in CVS (trunk).
foomatic-3.0.2-47.1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
foomatic-3.0.2-47.1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
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.
