Hola Felipe

Please look at the printer setup for Gnome 3.22 (Fedora 25).  The test
button with 3.22 allows me to see the extreme width/height. that my bro
HL2250DN can do and also shows how the driver handles shading /
black--gray--white continuum.

I will backport the patch and land the Test Button as an update then.
It might take a week to be available.

The 3.24 system logic chose a simple driver model, I use the alternative
(same driver, with more tweaking options).

I am going to revisit the automatic driver selection logic to try to
improve this situation. For now, you could go to the Printer Details
dialog and manually select a driver from the database. Does that work
for you?

We had implemented a major redesign of the Printers settings and the
Test Page button has been left out. It is back in GNOME 3.24.

True Gnome selects a driver, but it did not choose the driver that I
It chose a driver with less functionality.

Would you mind providing the printer model you have?

And how can I judge if the chosen driver prints to top,bottom,left,right

There is a Printer Options dialog which allows you to tweak that.

Gnome 3.22 printer setup provided a test page to show a frame -- the
limits for the physical printer.
Further, The test facility also depicted how well the "driver" printed
shading or rainbow.
My printers are laser ones. They have toner, not ink.  Why is my printer
shown as an ink printer.

The Brother drivers report information about printer toner amounts and
it is a laser printer.

Please stop rushing to provide new features until they are properly
