Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Basically, the text, whether set large scale or small, prints like the cartridge is finished. Just replaced it, and pre-Ubuntu switch .pdfs, and all other doc formats print just fine. Pretty frustrating. Have tried the MP250 onboard cleaning etc, and altered about every setting I can think of. I have been forced by a nerd girlfriend onto ubuntu and this is one of many niggles that's niggling hard as I do a lot of printing and research paper reviewing and cannot stand more than 20 pages of continuous text. Any ideas?

I hope that the "nerd" is with love. BTW, could you tell us, in detail and listing one by one all the methods you tried to solve the problem? Also, detail the model of printer, CUPS configuration, etc? –  Braiam Nov 20 '13 at 22:43
