# Printing area problem, Cups or latex?

Hi

This is a strange problem that I really hope someone here can answer:

Updated from Sarge to Etch, I just noticed that my label printing does not
work any more. I used to use the Latex "labels" package to do label
printing. But today, when I try it, the printed content is way off the
place.

I finally realized now that in Etch the printed content is located at the
bottom left of the given page size defined in CUPS. Ie,

If I set the page size to letter in CUPS, and print with

lpr generated_label.ps

the generated_label is printed at the bottom left of the letter page, if
actual letter page is used. If I set the page size to A4 in CUPS, the
printed content will shift down from the previous place a little bit.

Previously, the printed content is at the top left corner of the page.
So no matter how big my labels are, and no matter what page size that
I set, it will always print correctly to my label, on my ink-jet printer.

I think it is more a CUPS problem, but I'm not sure.

PS. Here is the latex file that I used for testing:

-------------------------------
