Description Fabrice Salvaire 2017-01-25 19:34:49 UTC
Description of problem:
Okular scale document when printing which means 1 cm is shorter by a factor 96.6 % in my case.

This is major issue when dimensions must be accurate.

There is a lot of issues on the KDE bugtracker about this:


Please check with upstream if this bug is resolved or not.

I would add a warning in the print box, if okular maintainers are not responsive on such issues!

Probably better tracked in one of the upstream bugs (we downstream in fedora will likely not be able to fix it ourselves without their collaboration).

Which one of the searched list you references most closely matches your issue, in your opinion?

Comment 2 Fabrice Salvaire 2017-01-25 22:00:56 UTC
Well, I am disappointed by this list of dated issues about printing. Maybe https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=336617 is the most relevant one.

lpr do the job, why not Okular ???

Actually F25 has 0.26.1 based on KDE 4.14.26 released on aug. 16. There is a newer version 1.0 released on dec 16. Apparently there is nothing relevant in the changelog.

Could we jump to the newer version ?

Anyway I filled this issue https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=375566 and let's  see what happens.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2017-01-26 13:20:42 UTC
Okular actually uses lpr to do printing, though I believe it uses the poppler library to render to postscript first.

The latest okular release is a major change (kde4 -> kf5 port), so the likelihood of an official fedora update is small.

There's a good chance to host a newer version in an opt-in copr, perhaps,

closing->upstream , will continue tracking there
