Thread: Opensuse 12.1 Will not print barcodes on coupons

  1. #1

    Default Opensuse 12.1 Will not print barcodes on coupons

    I upgraded to opensuse 12.1 and my printer works fine except when I try to print something with barcodes like a bestbuy rewards certificate. It will print everything but the codes ie vertical lines with numbers on it.
    I can print them just fine with another computer running 11.4, on the same printer. Not sure what is why 12.1 will not print everything on the page. Other than that I love 12.1 so far.

    Thanks

    Print to file and then check the file with gv.

    When you print to file, you get a choice to save as postscript (.ps) or pdf. When Carlos mentioned 'gv', he did not mean gwenview.

    GV - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation

    If you don't have installed, then do so
    Code:
    zypper in gv

    I intentionally did not mention print to pdf, that gets more processing.
    Any program before printing has to generate a postscript intermediate file
    that then is sent to the printer process. The idea is to intercept that
    file and see how good it is. The PDF is generated usually on a second step.

    Right. It is a simple program used as reference, for any desktop.

    No, but I did, as the OP may have selected either...

    Sorry I didn't know what gv was, I installed gv and opened the print to file and it printed the whole document just fine. So what does this mean? I have to use gv to print these types of documents or is there something I need to fix. Also why would it print fine with gv but not normally like 11.4, and 12beta did.

    So you tried to print from gv and it printed right?

    IMO it is a bug with your desktop of choice. Wait for comments, then report
    in bugzilla. Or post in the main mail list, there is a print expert there.

    Another possibility is print to file, then use lpr command line to print it.
