printer config?



Tried the new system-config-printer in FC6t3 for the first time and was surprised to find
the 65,722 HP printer models gone, and instead I was just offered a handful of PCL
drivers. I picked one that sorta worked, but the alignment needs mucho tweaking
to actually make the test page fit on the paper. (This is an old, but reliable, LaserJet 6L).

The alignmargins script from the downloads at http://linuxprinting.org/download/printing/
is pretty good at doing that kind of tweaking, but if you are gonna drastically
cut back on the number of custom drivers provided, it would sure be nice if such
a tweaking tool were built into system-config-printer instead of needing vast
web searches to locate one :-).

(It has always kinda irritated me that printer setup scripts offer to print a test page
for you, but provide no advice about how to proceed if the test doesn't print nicely).
