:mad: Hi there. I am running Mandrake 10.1 with Firefox 1.04 and Thunderbird 1.02. Printer is an HP 840C which is recognised by the machine. Everything is fine under Firefox but when I print out emails from Thunderbird, the printout is too large; parts of lines are missing.
The font is nothing like that appraring on the screen. From a look around, it looks as if I should be using Foomatic hpijs.

Can someone please show me what I am doing wrong

Cheers,
Jim

Sounds almost certainly to be a driver problem - I am not familar with Mandrake but there should be a number of different drivers available - try one and see if there is an improvement.
