[Mageia-discuss] Big printing issue with HP Photosmart 7150 and Mageia

I am experiencing since a lot of time big printing issues with an HP 
Photosmart 7150 and Mageia.

To make it simple, now the printer would not print me nothing else than 
a big black square under the middle of the page, whatever I give him to 
print : web page, document, printing a test page, he would not print 
nothing else than a black square.

My parents do not have a single issue while printing on the same printer 
with Windows. I have tried to fix the issue for months, deleting the 
printer config files, reinstalling packages, nothing has done it.

I am asking for your help. If this issue is not fixed (even though it 
used to work with Mandirva in the past), I will be forced to move the 
computer and all data under Windows 7 as my mother need a functionnal 
computer for her documents and photographies.

Thank you by advance for helping me understand what is going wrong.
