    Hi, I tried to make a bug report ... and had the feeling I am in government organisation and have to try to find out who is responsible ... bouncing around.
    That bugzilla is less intuitve than Einstein theory of relativity !!!
    I have now lost so much time ... and no relevant success ... don't know whether I will try it again.

    Ok finally I could write the bug report ... it is in fact easier to understand than Einsteins theory once one has understood the logic.

    BUG# 898141

    I know it can be daunting, but worth the effort to learn... and helping the community too

    Some useful tips here:
    https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Submitting_bug_reports

    It's the only viable way to get the attention of the developers to fix the issue.

    Well done. You maybe asked for more info, (or to try some procedures) in time.

    Unfortunately, I got no useable answer from the bugzilla guy in charge - no solution ! He closed the case.
    And , yes, I have read the link he gave me ... which lead to me to the the strange feeling , that this is a kind of philosophical problem between developers ? A different interpretation of a standard ? Or what ?

    Frankly said landscape printing is really not a super duper high-tech feature ... really sad!

    If you like to create your own opinion , have a look here : Bug 898141

    Btw. I tried to print on a friends Ubuntu installation with those applications concerned in landscape mode and it worked ... so obviously its not a problem of the applications.

    So long, Joe

    Hi there,

    found this : SDB:No Landscape

    The "solution" described, is in my opinion a nerd workaround; nothing a normal user really should ever be forced to do if he wants to print in landscape !
    It really looks as if some reactionary die-hards want to challenge the rest of the world


    Have a great day, guys !
