What version of driver are you using? Does it print correctly from the GUI?

I've never been able to print in Landscape either. But something happens when I try - pagination occurs as if the paper had been rotated (i.e. I get a new page after less lines). I had no idea whether this was a driver problem or something in CUPS: could you verify whether you see the same thing please? It would rule out printer driver if you do see the same and then I can put together a bug report to send to the CUPS developers

We can close this issue, its solved.

- I have installed there official latest driver and since then i can print but i could not do properly the landscape printing

- after doing lot of research found that i can use the command calls:

-o mode=Custom.WIDTHxHEIGHTin -o someWordSpace -o some.. thing like those and then it worked with landscape printing


- GUI also works to print such as GIMP printing and Gedit print works easyly


Thank you.
