Default GNOME faint printing problem.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I'm running Debian sid on an ia32 computer, with everything up to date,
and printing via CUPS to an HP Laserjet 4m. When I print from GNOME
applications, like evince or epiphany, the output is too faint to read.
But if I print the same document or web page from xpdf or iceweasel, it
prints normally.

This leads me to believe that the issue is something in the GNOME
environment, but as a recent convert from Windowmaker, I'm not that
familiar with the byzantine underpinnings of a modern desktop
environment. Also, I didn't see anything recent about this problem in
the bug tracker. Is this a known issue? Is there some simple setting
that I'm missing?

Thanks for any help,

- --Matt

I get that on a printer at work also. In my case I can set the resolution to
600x600 or 1200x1200 and I get better results. The default 300x300 is ok but
if anything is highlighted the color is to light.
