I had posted a related question in the Software forum but got no replies, so I'll try again here...
I am puzzled by a problem that arises when printing a landscape PDF file from my Linux machine on a HP DeskJet 930C. The document itself is created on my Mac with latex, the PSutils, and ps2pdf and prints correctly when sent to the same printer from the Mac. When printing from my Linux machine (Maya/MATE, software always kept up to date), however, either the right or left margin of the landscape printout lacks something between 0.5 and 2.5 mm, i.e. the text is cut off, and the margins are not equal; the details depend on the programs used and the printer and paper settings. Moreover, the whole page image is shifted towards the bottom of the landscape page by about 1 cm in the printed output; this happens independently from the program used for printing (tried evince and acroread) and is not visible in the print preview.
I have checked the printer setup in both programs as well as the system-wide configuration GUI. In all cases I use auto-rotation and no scaling (just as on the Mac), and the margins are set to 0, as they should be. For paper I tried both A4 and "A4 small margins"; the latter yields a result that is less bad but still flawed.
So I'm at my wit's end. If the PDF, which is by definition meant to be portable, prints perfectly well from my Mac, why doesn't it do so from the Linux box?
