Question PDF printing to cups with many output problems!


Im using ubuntu 7.10 and have connected to my box a HP LaserJet 1100 and Im trying to print some PDF files.... this is when the problem occour... I have tried Adobe Reader, xpdf, kpdf and all then when I print the pdf file the file printed have something like 25cm of left margin (or offset). I tried every possible visible configuration and yet not successfuly print this Landscape pdf reports.

Printing from a Windows Box trhough Samba the file printed have no problem. Only when printing directly from the linux boxes or from other linux boxes connected through the network...

This is something very important and Im trully hoping to find what is the problem....

One of the most forgotten things is that the printer must be set up identically. So, when the print dialogue appears, you have to open the "Properties" dialogue (button) and set your printer up to print landscape.

This is a step done automatically in Windows, but not in Linux.
