Little things that matter: The Ubuntu print test page

Something you won’t likely see on your screen but you will likely see if you’re configuring your printer in Ubuntu is the new Ubuntu branded print test page.

Print test pages, for those that don’t know, is essentially a lot of coloured blocks in a row that allow users to check if a printer is printing graphics and colours correctly.

Yes, this has a pretty Ubuntu logo on it and that’s pretty much the ‘change’ — but it’s about enveloping a users experience in a coherent and consistent way and this does that. (And you could cut the pretty Ubuntu logo out after and glue it to someone unsuspecting…)
