I'm running Ubuntu 13.04. I have an HP Photosmart C7280 printer, for which I'm using the recommended driver, "HP Photosmart c7200 Series, hpcups 3.13.3".

I'm printing on A4 paper, and in the printer properties I've selected "A4 Borderless" paper.

But when I print, the top 13mm and the bottom 30mm of the page are cut off.

I can turn on "Scale to fit" in the printer job options. In that case the whole page is printed, but scaled-down, which is not very useful.

How do I get my printer to use all of the paper? (The missing 30mm at the bottom is particularly annoying.)

I managed to solve this myself.

I downloaded a new driver from HP's website This solved the problem.
