Hi.
I have Linux Lite installed alongside Vista Ultimate.
I have installed the drivers for our printer, a Brother DCP-135C, unfortunately the print image is not in the correct position on the printed page.
The printed image is so high that when using Times-Roman 12 font, only half of the top line of text is printed on the top edge of the page.
The  header/footer and margins are appropriately set.
Does any one have a suggestion?

Regards...

Take a look at the file
 
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/Brother/Printer/dcp135c/inf/brdcp135crc
and verify if the value of PaperType matches your paper size. (Most likely your using A4 size paper, so change "Letter" to "A4")

It should be line 7, and look like this

Code: [Select]
PaperType=Letter

You want to change it to:

Code: [Select]
PaperType=A4

You can use the command in a terminal to open in leafpad to easily edit:
Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /usr/local/Brother/Printer/dcp135c/inf/brdcp135crc
If for some reason this doesn't work right away, may require a reboot.
The Truth is out there.
Be sure to check the Manual out and always report Bugs or feature requests.
