SDB:Printout Displacement in Epson Printers with CUPS

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara


Version: 8.1

Symptom

In some Epson printers, documents are printed in a wrong position when using CUPS. For example, the printout is displaced upwards 16 mm on an Epson Stylus C80. Some other Epson printers might also be affected.

If the displacement occurs only in printouts of ASCII texts when using CUPS, refer to the SDB article SDB:Print Settings for ASCII Texts with CUPS

Cause

You have used one of the following PPD files when setting up your Epson Stylus C80:
/usr/share/cups/model/Epson/Stylus_C80-gimp-print.ppd.gz
/usr/share/YaST2/data/printerdb/Stylus_C80-gimp-print.ppd
(the latter if the printer has been set up with YaST2).

The printer driver "Gimpprint" is used for both PPD files. This is started by the printing filter "cupsomatic" in the form of the Ghostscript driver "stp" to create the printer-specific data. This is the cause of the printout's displacement.

Solution

For Epson Stylus C80 printers, use the PPD file
/usr/share/cups/model/stp/escp2-c80.ppd.gz

The "Gimpprint" printer driver is also used for this PPD file, but it is started in the form of the CUPS driver "/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoprinter", which does not cause any displacement.

If you use YaST2, proceed as described in the SDB article SDB:Printer Configuration from SuSE Linux 8.1 on

       When the printer model is manually selected, any PPD file
       can be used instead of a preconfiguration...

Always use the same PPD file when setting up different queues "mono", "color", "photo", etc., but modify it as described in the SDB article SDB:Print Settings with CUPS

As for other Epson printers, select the suitable PPD file from
/usr/share/cups/model/stp/escp2-XXX.ppd.gz
(escp2-XXX is an abbreviation of the model name).
