    Default Landscape printing doesn't work

    Hi,

    i just installed Leap (KDE) a few days ago. Trying to print landscape with libre office (5.0.2.2) doesn't work.
    This issue has been a never-ending bug for a few years.
    Normally to set the printer language from pdf to postscript solved the problem.
    Now it doesn't. Has anyone a solution?

    Thanks!
    Saludos!

    Might want to say what printer and what driver you use

    Default AW: Landscape printing doesn't work

    Brother DCP-7065 DN, rpm packages from the Brother Solution center: generic LPR printer driver and generic CUPS wrapper printer driver.

    Maybe the Release Notes to Leap will help:

    Hello Sauerland,

    thanks for the link.
    If every non-PDF input is converted to PDF now do I have any chance to solve my problem?

    Hi!
    I have a Brother MFC-7360N (with drivers from solution center) and this is how I solved it in Leap42.1 in Librooffice (i e Calc):
    -> Tools meny and choose options
    -> choose print in the "left" meny
    -> uncheck the "PDF as standard print job format"
    -> restart Libreoffice

    Viola! Good luck


    regards
    I'm shameless like others in the forum -was I to any help or made sense? If yes: click the on the star below to the left. Written whit a ;-) in my eye.

    I can confirm this using brother MFC-5890CN
    I am using postscript (level from driver)
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    Hello conram and jonte1,

    that is exactly what I have already done. I have installed the generic drivers, I now try to install the non generic.

    Hi!

    I have no idea if your printer is Network, or local(USB) connected. Remember that I have a different Brother model then you. Did you read what I wrote in your tread about Scanlite?

    No I dont change PDF to PS level when printing. I do it ones and directly in Libreoffice. Below is a screenshot of how it looks like in my PC/Yast2/hardware/printers/brother/edit, Networkconnected.

    Hi jonte1,

    sure I read your comment in my other Skanlite thread.
    Now I have installed the non generic drivers and it works!!!
    My printer settings are equal to yours.



    Thanks everybody for helping.
    Saludos!
