Gutsy Printing Question

OK, for those of you using Gutsy, have you experienced any printing issues lately? I have an HP PSC 1600 multi-functional printer. Previous to Gutsy, I printed to it without any issues at all. I was amazed at how well it worked. Lately I have noticed that it doesn’t respect margins all to well, and depending on which app I print from, it either:

  • works as it should
  • works but looks really bad, like printing outside the margins, cutting off text and so forth
  • no printing at all, constantly causing the printer to jam, slamming of the print cartridges and so forth (I mean slamming to the point where I can hear it downstairs, whereas the printer is upstairs in a closed office)

Printing from Windows works as it should. I have also noticed these problems while on campus as well. There are a mix of HP printers to choose from in each classroom, however my printouts always look like garbage. Massive cutting off at the margins is what is happening at school now. Note I am using Kubuntu, so if you are experiencing this on Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Edubuntu as well, please let me know I am not the only one. Next time I am on campus, I can going to take a couple of live CDs with me and test from them. Thanks all!
