Maybe you can add yourself to the bug report I in my previous post. I
think if the developers see, that more people having this problem, the

What kind of drivers you're having the problems with? Here with all
available version of PCL/PS/PPD drivers for our Sharp MX-2600n devices (6
we have in total).
