Printer - paper feed?

Seems like when a print job is done, there isn’t much of a margin at all when the paper is torn off. Most receipt style printers have a feed button, obviously the Devterm printer doesn’t.

For now, my less than elegant solution, is to alias ‘feed’ to some commands that echo blank lines into a tmp file and then lpr that file.

Is there a more elegant solution I’m missing ? Is there maybe some CUPS setting to add a margin/feed to every job ?

In printer settings you can set feed length after print. I have mine set to 27mm, I believe.


I hate to be stupid… but I see no such setting anywhere I’ve looked. How does one find this setting?
