Description Alexander Larsson 2003-05-13 08:52:59 UTC
I have a laserjet 4L SMB printer (on a windows machine) that worked well in RH8,
but in RH9 it only prints the top left quarter of each page, scaled to fit the
whole page. 

I tried to remove the queue and re-add it. But that made no difference.

I use the ljet4 driver. Resolution is listed as 300 DPI in r-c-p, but changing
it to 150 DPI doesn't help.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-05-13 09:01:59 UTC
Does this happen with the test page, or only when printing from other applications?

Assuming you are using CUPS, please enable debugging by editing
/usr/lib/cups/filter/cupsomatic and setting the debug variable to '1'.

Alternatively, for LPRng, edit /usr/sbin/lpdomatic and make the same change.

After printing you should get some debugging information in /tmp.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2003-05-13 09:14:30 UTC
I switched from LPng to CUPS, and now it works fine.
