I didn't get the OP for this thread, but the stuff you're looking for  
is in the "Options" tab of the print dialog in Ubuntu.  You'll want to  
make sure "Ignore Scaling and Shrink To Fit Page Width" (that's a  
mouthful) is checked.

I happened to have a Mac handy, along with my Ubuntu box and was able  
to match-up what you were apparently referring to.  HTH
