I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.5 and a Samsung CLP-510N network printer with DIN A4 paper.

The printer is configured in the printer settings on Linux as page size A4.

When I print something consisting of more than one page, the content of the page will move higher up on the page for every consecutive page. Eventually the top will be cut off and the bottom half of the paper will be more and more empty.

What can i do?

  • Contact the printer manufacturer.

At a guess, the printer is still set for the slightly shorter "letter" size, 11 inches (28 cm) tall. Try the following

Hopefully, it's just setting the specific printer.

    And, for good measure, make sure the guides in the paper tray are against the paper, so the printer itself knows the paper size, too.
