Borderless printing

Asked by Sohrab Towfighi

I am on Ubuntu 22, running HPLIP 3.22.6 to print with my HP 7612 on Tabloid paper.

I specify a custom paper type of Tabloid paper size with 3mm margins when printing a PDF file. I also set Fit to Printable Area. When I preview the file, the 3mm margins are gone and I have these huge ~1 inch margins. I tried switching to photo paper in the options, but when I preview the printout, still large margins. Even when I try printing with the built-in Tabloid 11x17in Small Margin paper size, I get big margins in the preview and the prinout. Any ideas?

There is no "Ubuntu 22", but there are two different releases that have the digits 22 in their release number - 22.04 and 22.10.
Which one are you running?

Ubuntu 22.04 provides HPLIP version 3.21.12 and only Ubuntu 22.10 has HPLIP 3.22.6

In both cases your question is wrong here.

If you are running Ubuntu 22.04, then you have installed foreign software and we cannot help (you better ask at )
If you are running Ubuntu 22.10, then you are using a not-yet-supported release of Ubuntu. Ubuntu 22.10 is still in development for publication in a month's time.

Can you help with this problem?
