OK, I have xv installed and working, however it doesn't do what I
want still, it actually works rather the same as imageMakgick.  I have
done what you said:-

    After that, it takes 30 seconds to get what you want:
    xv myfile
    right button to get the menu
    click and drag with button 1 to select the rectangle area
    click on crop
    click on print ...

... and the result is a small image printed in the middle of my sheet
of A4 paper, it doesn't print the cropped image expanded to fill the
whole sheet.
