Re: setting up Epson LX-800 dotmatrix on FC4

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

printing quality is a bit better, but leaves a lot to
be desired.
the CUPS test page lists a dpi of 120x72. Is there a
way to increase print dpi.

Or any other way to increase print quality?
