    CUPS test page:
    Media Dimensions: 210X297mm.
    Media Limits: 3X14 to 207X295mm

    HPLIP test page:
    Page Size: 203.7X280.9mm
    Lower-Left: 3.2X14.5mm
    Upper-Right: 206.9X295.4mm
    Resolution: 300X300dpi
    11781X11781dpm


    /etc/cups/ppd/Deskjet_1000_J110.ppd:
    *ImageableArea A4/A4 210x297mm: "9 41.040000915527 586.440002441406 837.359985351562"



    Ehm.....I don't know what to do, with all those numbers.
    Test pages are both (CUPS and HPLIP) OK.
    The entry of ppd file, seems a bit cryptic to me!
    G.
    Paper sizes can be measured in inches, mm, or point sizes.

    http://www.printernational.org/iso-paper-sizes.php

    The 'ImageableArea values appear to be point sizes, with top,left,right,bottom values defined (in that order). Comparing with the corresponding PaperDimension values, it looks like you have 9 points margin from top/bottom edges, and 41 points margin from left/right edges. That corresponds to ~3mm and 14.4mm respectively. So, maybe those values are okay after all. Anyway, I hope that's clarified things for you.

    You keep mentioning PDF. Do only PDF files print incorrectly? It looks like hplip reports the closest it can print to the bottom of the page is 14.5mm. Does the PDF file have text below that?

    When I print from LibreOffice, on print dialog, printer properties,
    device tab, I get below a line that says "printer language type". I can
    choose PDF or PS (3 versions). Left to automatics, it uses PDF, but I
    get much better results with PS.

    I don't see that choice on other programs, though.

    The problematic document is PDF.
    I didn't show this error, in other types, but I don't print frequently.

    Default Απ: Re: Απ: Re: Hplip slow printing.

    ΟΚ! Solved!

    What was needed, is activating the option Print Settings -> Image Printing -> Fit to Page -> On.
    Somehow is on by default in Windows, but the opposite (off by default) in Linux.

    Switching it to "On" did the trick and now everything's fine!
    THANKS!!!
