I have an HP Photosmart 8450 installed on fedora 12. It prints
beautifully when it comes to colour pages on plain paper format A4.
However, when printing photos it fails. I simply cannot force it to
print 4 by 6 inch borderless photos. The printer test page comes out in
the correct size but the printer does not accept that the photo tray is
activated and when I activate the A4 plain paper tray the 4 by 6 inch
test page comes out on A4 paper.

I have set the following options:

Media Size: Photo Borderless 4x6 in
Media source: Photo tray
Output Mode: Color
Media Type: Photo Paper
Print Quality: High-Resolution Photo
Installed Inks: Photo + Color

The driver is: hpcups 3.8.9

Does anyone know what is wrong?

Try using "Black + Color". Even though I have 3 color, 1 photo
black, and one black cartilage, the "Photo + Color leads to a wrong
paper size error when trying to use the photo tray...

Good Suggestion but it didn't help.

What helped was to update hpcups to 3.9.12. Same options except that "Installed Inks" was no longer an option. hpcups 3.8.9 is sick.
