Printing Problems - Canon Pixma iP3000 printing only half of the last page of job

I'm using a Canon Pixma iP3000 printer. I've used this printer for several years with Linux with no real problems. Right now I'm running under Bodhi Linux 2.0 (which has an Ubuntu 12.04 base) and I'm having a very strange problem:

Whatever I print, the last page only prints the first half. But all of the pages before the last page print fine.

I've tried turning the printer on and off, and initiating the nozzle cleaning, and rebooting the computer, reinstalling the driver, etc. But nothing seems to help.

Any ideas?

tricky one

first what happens if you print (say) a three page file....and select pages 1-2....will page 2 print ok?

b) then can you select the last page ok?

2) this last page issue....have you tested it with say a 2 page pdf....a 2 page txt.....a 2 page image file

3) what locale settings do you have?

4) what font packages do you have installed....I am thinking ....maybe the last page has a font not supported by your current distro?

5) if its a web page....provide a link to it
