Subject Re: Strange printing problem
Date Thu, 29 May 2008 09:35:51 GMT
In addition to Andreas' comments:
This problem has come up here a number of times now (See archives). The
HP PCL drivers are known to cause problems with printing from AWT/Java2D.
The HP *n priners (i.e. the ones with a network interface) usually all
have PostScript capabilities. Please install the PostScript printer
driver instead of the PCL one and there's a large chance that it'll work.
