This is one of those posts where desperate Linux users share their most annoying experience with Bugs/Errors/ConfigurationAttempts, and how they fixed it, with the world.
Today I've printed out half a bug to fix an error with Brother my DCP-115C Printer. (But I think that all printers using the MFC-210C drivers will have the error in a similiar way) They have this little annoyance that the print margin is not correct for the used paper format. The top was cut off, but I've seen a lot of users that complaining about left, right and bottom margins as well.
But luckily this is easy to fix:
- Make sure that CUPS uses the right paper format. E.g. Letter is often the default format while europeans use A4 instead.
- Excecute this as root:
brprintconfij2 -P MFC210C -reso 600 -pt A4This will lauch some brother configuration script which will helped in my case and as far as I could tell from google, it helped others as well. :-)
