oowriter printing always fails
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting to print to my usual cups printer always fails. A dialog appears
"Error while printing". That's all it says.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print to default printer
And this only affects OOo, not anything else ?
Yes, I can/do print fine from many other apps. All kde is fine, acrobat, etc.
Is selinux in operation, (output of /usr/sbin/getenforce) if on just toggling
off make any difference ?
If run from a terminal is there any output on the terminal ?
"x86_64", I wonder if there is something connected to that.
1. selinux is disabled
2. run from terminal
(swriter.bin:4106): GnomePrintCupsPlugin-WARNING **: iconv does not support
ppd character encoding: MacStandard, trying CSISOLatin1
===above were printed on terminal before I tried to print, below is after:
** (swriter.bin:4106): WARNING **: IPP request failed with status 1280
I'm able to print ok on a i386 fc5, so a bit stumped at the moment.
The "IPP ... failed" should also be seen if you start gedit in a terminal and go
You mentioned KDE apps and acroread being ok, does gedit print ok ?
gedit prints fine, although on terminal it says:
GnomePrintCupsPlugin-Message: The ppd file for the CUPS printer exd26hp could
not be loaded.
GnomePrintCupsPlugin-Message: The ppd file for the CUPS printer exd29hp could
not be loaded.
How about with the recent 2.0.2-5.12.2 where we reverted the print dialog to the
default one again to work around some dbus issues, does that print properly ?
Does this persist, or did the above fix it ?
