Will look there thanks. The reason why I'd like to switch is that the
standard LaserJet PPD is very conservative with page limits. The result is
that my A4 page does not get printed completely. BTW thanks to the one
pointing this out (sorry, I accidently deleted your mail, so I don't know
the name).

I tried changing that but it won't work unless I change the PCL driver that
is part of the cups package. So maybe it's better to use gs again.
