This is the slink version, while the poster indicated potato. Sometimes
this difference doesn't matter, but in this case there have been some
important changes, specifically the upp drivers replacing stcolor.

How is changing the output resolution from 720 dpi to 740 going to solve
the problem? The 740 in "Epson Stylus Color 740" is a model number, not a
dpi rating.

i had this problem i while back with Stylus Color 600, in the end i ended
up modifying the stylus_color_###dpi-filter to use @stc600pl.upp instead
of @stc2.upp, and @stc600p.upp instead of @stc800p.upp. i don't know the
proper filters for a 740; the gs docs indicate that @stc500p.upp (360
dpi), @stc500ph.upp (720 dpi), and stcany.upp (360 dpi) should function,
although the gamma correction may be wrong.

Read the uniprint section in /usr/doc/gs-aladdin/Devices.htm for more
