Thread: problems printing landscape with libreoffice and suse 12.1

  1. #1

    Default problems printing landscape with libreoffice and suse 12.1

    on opensuse 12.1 plain fresh install and tumbleweed
    kde4.7.x and 4.8.x
    libreoffice 3.4.5 and 3.4.4
    with printers samsung clp-320n(network cable) and clp-300(usb cable)
    drivers from The Samsung Unified Linux Driver Repository
    used alien on this Index of /suldr/pool/debian/extra
    to convert in rpm

    on opensuse 12.1 I installed the official Samsung unified Linux driver, I met problems to print with both the printers;
    no printing pdf, printing double and so on;
    so I tried to install on another pc linux mint;
    I installed the drivers from http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/smfpv3.html;
    everything went well and I didn't faced any problem on printing;
    libreoffice 3.4.4 can print landscape!!!!!

    so I converted drivers from The Samsung Unified Linux Driver Repository to rpm with alien;
    I installed on opensuse 12.1 by yast;
    the printing was very better with this drivers than the samsung official ones;
    but in suse 12.1 I cannot print landscape with libreoffice 3.4.4 and 3.4.5!!!!
    in libreoffice it shows everything correctly in landscape, but when I print the sheet is in portrait;
    if in libreoffice I print on file, it creates a correct pdf file in landscape and when I print from okular the printing is ok in landscape.

    after all this tests my suspect is that the problem is something in suse 12.1, am I wrong?? is a bug or I can solve?

    Open any LibreOffice app and go to File=>Printer Settings=>Properties=>Device tab. Is the "Printer Language type" set to PDF? If so, it's probably https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44664. The workaround is to change the printer language to Postscript (level from driver).

    Thanks it works now :-)) as I said in the thread you suggested me, I think the problem isn't on libreoffice, becouse I installed the same libreoffice on linuxmint and it print correctly in landscape , may be the problem is in suse??

    It's not only openSUSE, because the bug report and its duplicates have reports from users of Fedora, PCLinuxOS, Arch Linux, Scientific Linux, and Gentoo. But comment #19 in that bug notes that so far no Ubuntu/Debian derivatives have reported the problem.
