Top of the page while printing is chopped off.

I'm using CUPS with my Epson CX3200 in Slackware 10.0. What do I have to do to fix this?

I have a HP printer that does the same thing when printing from Mozilla. You may want to see if you can change the margins for the printer. I've been meaning to do that on mine too. Been a bit busy lately.

Point you browser here: http://localhost:631/

If you use KDE there is another then in the Control Center thingy.

Hope that helps, otherwise, BUMP.

Are you trying to print A4 Pages, while the printer is set to US Letter. I had a problem where the top lines were amputated, and this was my problem.

You should be able to set this in CUPS.
