Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121157
PDF printing does not work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
Description of problem:
It is impossible to print to a PDF or generic postscript file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write something in the spreadsheet
2. File->Print, select Print to PDF file
3. Confirm by clicking on "Print"
A dialog box should pop up, asking me the filename for the printout,
then a file of that name containing PDF or PS should be written.
With 1.2.1-1 (and with 1.2.8 as in Fedora Core 2) when you use
File->Print and select "Print to PDF" then the "Location" line in this
dialog underneath "Print to PDF" changes to "File" with "output.pdf"
auto-selected, and a "save-as" button which you can use to change the
output filename. So you can certainly print to PDF with 1.2.1-1
No, the said line does NOT change in the 1.2.1-1 I have.

1st file->print dialog

2nd file->print dialog
These are the print dialogs that I'm seeing with the fedora core 1
1.2.1-1 rpm I installed. The first is from file->print... and the
second is when I select "Create a PDF document" from the print action.
Is it the case that your print dialogs do not match these pictures ?

After clicking on "create a PDF document", destination stays set on CUPS
This is what I obtain after I choose to create a PDF document: the destination
chooser stays fixed on CUPS, and CUPS is the only possible choice.
Ah right, this was http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126046,
apparently a general problem with that print dialog + CUPS and not
solely an abiword issue. Which is why it worked for me as my
libgnomeprint etc are gnome 2.6
caolan->owen: fixed in 2.6 libgnomeprint issue
If that may help, the problem does NOT happen with Evolution, which is
linked against the same libgnomeprint.
What libgnmeprint version is this? Should this be libgnomeprintui
or libgnomeprintui22, not the gnome-1.x gnome-print package?
Does the problem occur in FC2?
Can't really make much sense of this bug report, but libgnomeprint-2.6
was in FC2.
