Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 89306
Prunting unformatted files, two lines at bottom of each page are missing
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:12 EDT
Description of problem:
When printing out an unformatted file, such as received e-mail or a man-page,
the software organizes the file into pages of 64 lines, with 80 columns.
The printer prints out 62 lines, and a bit more, then goes to the next page.
Result: two missing lines at the bottom of each page.
The printer is of type Epson Stylus Color 850, the paper type in printconf
is set as "letter". All formatted jobs I have printed came out just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Find a man-page with more than 62 lines, enter "man <name> | lpr".
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: Unformatted files send 64 lines per page; only 62 are printed.
Expected results: 62 lines per page for unformatted files.
Have you tried the 'Convert text to PostScript' option?
email@example.com; May 2, 2003:
I added a file /home/owyler/.printconf with three lines:
pl D num 53 #lines per page
pw D num 80 #characters per line
This fixes the problem, but I still think it's a bug; this should not be needed.
Typo: The 53 above is really 52.
Current rawhide has a fix for lines-per-page, by adjusting the default page margins.
