Description of problem:
Brother HL-1440 will not print correctly at resolutions above 300x300. If
600x600dpi is selected, the test page printed will be the upper-left quarter of
the page at 4x normal size. If 600x1200dpi is selected, a blank page is
printed. Seems the driver does not correctly set the resolution, but does send
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create LPR or CUPS printer using the foomatic Brother HL-1440 driver.
2.Set resolution on the printer to 600x600 or 600x1200
3.Print a test page
Actual Results: Test page printed at 600x600 has very large print (4x) and only
1/4 of the information will fit on the page.
Expected Results: Normal test page (as in 300x300 mode)
I've searched the foomatic database on LinuxPrinting.org and found that while
the Brother HL-1440 is listed as "working perfectly" the driver file show it to
be "untested". Seems to me that it should actually be tested before listed as
working perfectly. Also, the HP drivers produce the same problem as the Brother
driver. Maybe Brother is using a non-standard code sequence to switch to the
Fixed in foomatic-3.0.1-11/ghostscript-7.07-31 (actually much earlier,
I'm sure). I can print using any resolution using the hl1250 driver.
