LPR Printing is cut off

I haven't had any success on any other forums...I hope someone can help.

I'm currently running Ubuntu 5.10 and I'm using a Samsung laser printer ML-1710.

If I print from most graphical applications (OpenOffice, gedit, etc) it prints perfectly fine, but if I print through terminal using lpr the top and the left hand side of the text is cut off, like it has negative margins or something. I've tried most of the -o options with lpr, with no luck. Any suggestions?
