As one of the people contributing the GLabels template :) I've found
that I had to significantly update my glabels template settings to get
it to work under F11 (including updating to the hplip in
updates-testing to work around the bug where it chooses the default
paper tray no matter what tray you select).

I would say that the setting are now more "sane". i.e. the settings
for x0 y0 are now much closer to 0,0. But it's still a big pain when
you go to so much trouble to tweak it in and then everything changes
on you.

If anyone is interested in the template send me a request to my email directly.
