I'm trying to use Gimp 2 with my new XP-960 Photo printer, but
have found some problems with print setup. I am using the 2.18 version
running in Windows. What I am trying to do is the following:
* I want to print a 27,5 cm-wide photo on a A4 format (that is,
slighty smaller than the A4). I want the photo to be centered, so
there should be a blank zone all around it.
* To do this, I set up the printing resolution (see print_res.jpg)
* If I select "print" and "page setup" the dialog seems to display
exactly what I want in a small window (see conf_page.jpg): A
centered image in the middle of the A4 format.
* I finally set up the XP-960 driver preferences (see general.jpg and
more_options.jpg). As I am printing test images, I have selected
standard paper and printing quality.
When I print a .jpg test image I find that it is not
centered on the paper sheet. Instead, the image is printed starting on
the upper-left corner, thus leaving two wide blank bands on the right
and bottom ends of the A4.
Could it be a compatibility problem with the XP-960 driver? I
can print centered images with Paint without any problem.
Another strange problem comes up if I try to change the size
of the output format in page setup from A4 to, for example, A6 (about
10x15 cm). I can change it, but to no avail, because if I close the
dialog and open it back again it keeps showing an A4 format.
