I've searched the manpages, forums and Google for an answer. No luck.
Please tell me how I can control the default fonts and margins of a printer.
I suspect you'd need to provide more info, like what printer is it ? inkjet or laser
Make, model, connection type etc etc.
I know that my laserjet 4050 can be configured for defaults from the screen/buttons on the device, plus various settings available from either the kde printer manager and directly from cups.
So perhaps you could "flesh out" your problem a little.
