Eliminate borders on Canon Pixma 600?


I am having a hard time getting the 3mm white borders to stop printing around my pics with a Canon Pixma 600 while using Fedora Core 7 and the mp600 drivers supplied at the Canon ftp site:


I have tried modifying the .ppd file by setting:

*HWMargins: "0 0 0 0"
*ImagableArea Letter: "0 0 612 792"

and reloading cups, but the borders still appear when i print the test page from cups and when i print from The Gimp.

I read on a somewhat-dated wiki page on the Gentoo site that it *was* possible to eliminate these borders, but I'm at a loss to discover how. And I know the printer will successfully print without borders because I have done this from (cough) Windoze.

Any ideas?


fc7, gimp, postscript, ppd, printing
