Description Olivier Baudron 2001-04-22 18:11:22 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.
Comment 2 Olivier Baudron 2001-04-23 07:21:10 EDT
I rebuild ghostscript-5.50-17 with print-4.1.2 (instead of 4.0a3) and it works
fine now. 

PS: the latest stable release of print is 4.0.4
PPS: Component of my bug report should be set to ghostscript
Comment 3 Olivier Baudron 2001-07-15 06:14:34 EDT
Fixed in ghostscript-6.51-1 (print-4.0.5).
