Print Card is broken in Linux because of resolution dependence

Well, on the driver front, I am running Debian Squeeze.  It will have the
latest drivers that have found their way into Debian, I don't know what more
up to date anyone could need than that.  Or even where they would get any
more up to date drivers.  No-one installs printer drivers on Linux, you just
use what's in the distribution.  If Rev wants to fix this, and they think
its a driver problem, let someone there install Mandriva RC or some other
leading edge distro and verify that it makes no difference.

I'm the customer.  I want to see some sign that someone else is doing some
work on this besides me, Richard and Richmond.  Someone in Edinburgh.

Just to satisfy Richard, I will go in the next couple of days and repeat the
experiment with Motif selected.  It won't make any difference, but I'll do

Now, one fundamental point.  This is not about Linux.  This is not about the
profitability of the Linux version, or Linux market share or any of this

This is about Rev as a company.  Is it a quality producer or not?  If so, it
cannot release buggy software with features that do not work, in one of its
products.  It does not matter whether these products are profitable or not. 
That is not my problem.  Rev decided to release a Linux version.  Fix it!
