Wow, seems like printing=brain surgery.....
Just did a rebuild and am setting up my printer.
I got all my stuff--cups, ghostscript, hpijs, gimp-print, my printer ppd, etc
I used the online CUPS setup which went quite well....(i have an HP812C btw)
Now I'm getting unbelievably grainy print output. I went into KDE print configurer
and changed <lineart> to <photograph> (this seems to have helped in the past)
but still no dice. I use GNOME, so I don't know if that makes a diff.
I'm sure I'm overlooking something relatively easy(as is ususally the case), but
I've spent 2 days trying to print a document......kinda silly.....
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I've searched the WIKI end to end to no avail.
Thanx in advance and Happy New Year!
If you are using CUPS, then from my experience, fire up the CUPS control panel from the web interface, goto "Printers" -> "Configure Printer", and play with the "resolution" settings.
I had to do so with my printer. It was using a lower DPI resolution as default than what mine was capable of doing. My printer is an NEC Superscript 870 laser printer, however, I use the "HP II Laserjet" driver instead of the PPD file associated with my printer. The PPD file for my printer just doesn't work. So, I would suggest you try a compatible driver if the first recommendation doesn't help.
