Lexmark Z53 Alignment/Margin


Hello!

I just finished getting my Lexmark Z53 printer configured using CUPS: the printer itself is connected via serial to my upstairs WinXP machine, and I am now able to print from it using my downstairs Mandrake 9.1 machine. According to CUPS, the driver I'm using is: "Lexmark Z53, CUPS+GIMP-Print v4.2.5(en)". Unfortunately, whenever I print anything from my Linux machine, the alignment is off: it looks like about half an inch is being cut off the top of the page, and when printing multiple pages the text goes right to the bottom. When I tried to run the alignment configuration suggested on LinuxPrinting.org, the Test Page was completely black. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Regards,
Mike

Hi! I think I found the article that you were talking about, and unfortunately the other fellow who had a similar problem to mine didn't end up getting his problem solved. I'm just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and has found their way aroud it? Thanks very much for your help!
