Cups sorrows
 
Hi folks

I have a new problem. I used cups for some time. Recently I reinstalled crux linux after a partition blew it's gasket.

I have a hp officejet j5780. I installed hplip and cups.
hplip 2.7.6-1
foomatic-filters 3.0.2-1
ghostscript 8.63-1
cups 1.3.8-1

If I print an image it prints perfectly. If I print the test images from either cups or from hp-toolbox they print fine. However if I try to print from the likes of openoffice or a textfile they do print but with complete disregard for spacing and formatting. No matter how I screen format the document, when I print it it comes out with no space whatsoever between successive lines. And I meant no space, the bottom of topline and top of bottom line are almost joined.

I tried various other PPD files including the one from linuxprinting.org and from hpijs and gutenprint etc. No joy.

Evenmore annoying is that I have a PCLinux installed in another partition with same ppd file as the driver and with similar setup. I even compared the files in /etc/cups/* between two installations without much use. Only real difference is the one under PCLinux is an older version of cups/gutenprint etc.


Any help will be greatly appreciated.
