Description martin.macok 2001-03-09 08:01:17 EST
I've got HP DJ 600 and A4 papers. When I create some postscript files and
view them with ghostview they are OK. When I print them they don't fit pages - I cannot see upper 2cm because it's out of paper and there is a
4cm white on the bottom of the paper - so it's shifted 2cm in up direction.

I have tried both cdj550 and dj500 drivers (printconf-gui) with the same results. I have tried newer ghostscript-*/LPRng*/printconf-* packages from Rawhide with same bad results. Even when I print "A4 postscript page" from printconf-gui I see on the very upper side of paper just "2cm" so it's obvious it's 2cm shifted.

This worked OK with first public beta (fisher) and with RH7.0.

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-03-09 18:57:37 EST
fixed in rawhide.
Comment 3 martin.macok 2001-03-14 12:03:38 EST
I have upgraded (rpm -Fvh *.rpm) to current rawhide:
and then ran "printconf-gui" 
  -> del printer -> add printer -> HP DJ 600/cdj550/A4 ... restart
and then tried to print some files (*) with "lpr file.ps" and the
problem is persisting.

 printed from Mozilla to file OR
 "mpage <plaitext.txt | lpr"

Postscript files previewed with ghostview seems OK.

yeah, there was some regression.
fixed again, even better. Sorry.
