I’ve mentioned that i’ve set up the schools library using OpenBiblio. Everything was working, barcodes were printed, but their quality was questionable. (the text and barcodes were blurred – as in like the printer was shaking when it was printing)
We were sure that the printer is capable of doing a good job , as it did before. When i was generating reports using Firefox as a browser, the PDF would be opened within the browser where i would print it. The resulting print was with the blurred lines. When i was generating reports using Chromium as a browser, the PDF would be downloaded – so i would print directly from the file, but i got a total different result, as you can see in the picture:
I’ve played a lot with the print settings in Firefox when i first installed the system but i didn’t realized that the settings weren’t the same when i printed a file. I checked the Page Setup tab in the printing area, where i saw this:So , i was actually printing 6 labels of 2X3 inches on a 11X8.5 inches paper. Hmmm. I’ve set the correct settings:
Conclusion – check your print settings (all of them) before jumping to other conclusions.
