hi,

i have 2 problems with pnm2ppa-1.12.
a) black areas are not black
b) there are thin lines every print sweep

on http://www.rootshell.be/~nwaibel/printer.html you can
find a more detailed description and parts of some scanned
printouts. the thin lines are really anoying...

i had a quick look into the code ...
... but could not find the problem yet.

if you have further questions please ask: niki.waibel@gmx.net

    pnm2pa has a not very good "ad hoc" way of treating black as
    either
    text or black in images. It may get it wrong. Basically,
    It should be turned into a gimp-print backend, to use gimp-print
    for image processing. But the PPA printers are obsolete,
    and no
    further pnm2ppa development is planned.

    pnm2ppa is OK for what it does. but get a new printer for
    images.
