CUPS problem - page margins


I have an Epson Stylus CX 5400 connected to a SuSE 9.1 system. CUPS version 1.1.20 provides drivers for the 5200 model, of which on my system CUPS + gimp-print 4.2.6 is working, while the foomatic solutions don't. But there is one problem with printing with this system: the printout is shifted vertically by 1,7 cm towards the top, so that documents have next to no margin at the top but too big a margin at the bottom. I tested OpenOffice and Inkscape as well as the CUPS test page and both show the same deviation. The test page gives a page size of 209.6x276.2mm, a lower-left of 3.2x3.2mm and an upper right of 212.7x279.4mm. The actual page size is 210mmx297mm (A4) so the upper right is out of bounds here, but while that means that the printout of the test page prints the right-hand vertical line off the page, in the programs there is no such deviation, only the shift upwards.

I do not know where I can edit the page parameters in order to make the page fit. I am using the web administration tool for CUPS, but for some reason the button 'configure printer' gives me a 'server-error-internal-error' - 'modify printer' works, but not 'configure'. In Yast2 (SuSE config tool) I cannot find anything which sets paper sizes.

Can anybody help?

Robin

Problem solved, I upgraded CUPS and could reach the configuration page afterwards. I set the page size to A4, now it works perfectly and with correct margins.
