Acer Extensa 5635ZG
Epson Stylus Photo PX710W, connected with WiFi
I have just discovered that I can’t print text from libreoffice writer/calc if the layout is set to landscape. The letters seems to have been stretched and printed over each other. If I print the same document in kword/kspread everything is printed as it should be.
I have generated a pdf of the document and printed from okular/acroread, even then it’s not printed correctly. Although it looks ok in okular/acroread.
What else that can be seen is that when it’s wrongly printed the printout is printed in the opposite direction compared to when it’s printed correctly. I.e. the tail comes first on the paper so to say.
Any thoughts of this? Where should I begin to search for faults?
As the printer is on the(wireless) network I can’t say that the system has detected anything really. I have installed the drivers from Linux Driver | AVASYS CORPORATION and manually selected the correct model when adding the printer in cups:
Epson Stylus Photo PX710W - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.6.
Unfortunately I can’t remember if I ever printed anything in landscape when using openSUSE 11.3…
My problem was different; I had the “correct” driver, but the resolution was set incorrectly to 1200x600 (instead of 600x600). I modified this in the program (LibreOffice) that I was trying to print from and now it works. For some reason, this only affected landscape printing and not portrait.
I took the driver from avasys site. The solution that worked for me was to not choose the driver from the dropdown for model in Cups. Instead I looked it up where it is installed and put that in “Or Provide a PPD File:”.
Don’t know if it’s a bug in 11.4, haven’t had possibility to try in 11.3.
