[Bug 405116] Re: "hpcups" driver of HPLIP has broken margins


Can someone please reopen this bug!

I have just tried the test file I attached 18 months ago again. The
margins are even more broken now! Printing the test with shrink to fit
enabled shows a 15mm clip at the top and bottom and 4mm each side in
both single sided and duplex modes on A4.

This driver has been broken for 6 years now!!!!!!!!

Or at least someone tell me what is wrong with my test :-)

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: hplip

  Hi.  I have an HP DeskJet D2600 connected via USB.  When I turned the
  printer on, a default configuration named Deskjet-D2600-series (using
  the "HP Deskjet d2600 Series [en]" driver) was generated that I can
  see in the gnome printer configuration window.  When I print a test
  page the contents has a big margin at the top and the bottom is cut

  In the printer configuration if I change the driver to "HP Deksjet
  d2600 Series hpijs [en]" or "HP Deksjet d2600 Series hpijs 3.9.6b.4
  [en]" the margin problem is corrected, but now black contents is
  printed in what looks like a combination of colors that appears black
  but looks more like dark brown.

  What I'm hoping for is that the margins for the default driver are
  corrected.  I can provide any information that might be needed.
