Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 37097
Top margin is too large on a epson stc800 printer
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
I have an epson stylus color 800 printer and all rpm up-to-date:
Under the gui interface of printconf I chose the "stp" driver for a stylus
color 800 printer. As is suggested, this driver is indeed the best for this
Now the problem is that the top margin is about 1 cm too large (compared to
any other driver for this printer (stcolor, st1520h, ...). This is
particularly true for ascii text formatted with mpage: the bottom of the
page is missing. I should also mention that this is not a problem related
to a4/letter format.
Argh, it seems it is a limitation of the stp driver provided in gimp.
I rebuild ghostscript-5.50-17 with print-4.1.2 (instead of 4.0a3) and it works
PS: the latest stable release of print is 4.0.4
PPS: Component of my bug report should be set to ghostscript
Fixed in ghostscript-6.51-1 (print-4.0.5).
