Question Removing the default 0.25 inch x-offset from postprint?

I have set up a printer with
lpadmin -p printername -o protocol=bsd,dest=hostname,banner=never -v /dev/null -m netstandard -T PS -I
to get around some other problems as that the printer completely ignored the print jobs when it was originaly sent as plain text. Sending it as postscript also takes care of non-english characters.

Everything is peachy, except postprint moves everything 0.25" to the right by default. As the print-job is created by a COBOL system, I can't just add "-y x=0" to the lp command to remove it.

Anyone who could give me some pointers how to fix this? Any good swith to lpadmin? Or how I could alter a printer filter... Smilie

Thanks in advance Smilie
