Can't "shrink to fit" PDF doc


I'm trying to print out a PDF document that is slightly larger than the printable area allowed by my printer. I selected “Shrink (print the whole page)” but the bottom of the document keeps getting chopped off every time I try to print. The margins are set up correctly. This happens in both KPDF and KGhostView. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm using openSUSE 11.0, KDE 3.5.9. Printer is an Epson Stylus C44UX.

Thanks!

Don't know how to fix the problem with KDPF and Ghostview.I don't run KDE. I use Gnome instead. I installed Adobe 8.1 on mine. Maybe you can get better results from installing Adobe 8.1 PDF reader. If you wish to check it out here is a good site tutorial on installing it on any linux distro.
