(j3.2006) Malcolm and dvips are exonerated
Wed Jan 16 16:30:03 EST 2008
We have three identical Xerox 9300 printers.
Their settings were created one from another using the "copy" button in
the "system-config-printer" program in Centos 5 Linux.
On only one printer, the page is shifted downward by about one inch.
With 08-007.ps on the other two identical printers, there is no problem.
So Malcolm and his new TeX installation are exonerated. He didn't get a
stealth A4 installation by installing a new TeX distribution (which has
happened to me, which is why I suspected it). There's something screwy
about just one of our printers. It does the same thing to SOME other
documents, including 07-007r3.ps (which I printed on that printer for
182), but others come out just fine.
