Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219261
Print dialogue in Writer is missing the "Print" button.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
Sometimes it is not possible to print from Writer. Often when I open the print
dialog, the print button has disappeared. The only buttons visible are "Options"
and "Cancel". There are lot of printers available in the dialog, ca. 40 network
printers broadcastet from our central cups-server, and one local HP PSC2110
USB-printer. Clicking on them will not give a "Print" button, so it seems like
Writer finds all the printers to be unusable.
The same files can be printed from the same printers using other programs as
Abiword. I dont think there is anything wrong with cups as other programs do not
have any problems I have noticed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tord@itse6843]~% rpm -q -i openoffice.org-writer-2.0.4-5.5.3
Name : openoffice.org-writer Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 2.0.4 Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release : 5.5.3 Build Date: Fri 10 Nov 2006 10:03:49
Install Date: Fri 08 Dec 2006 09:50:18 AM CET Build Host:
Client Cups version is
[tord@itse6843]~% rpm -qa | grep cups
On the Cups server:
[root@linprint ~]# rpm -qa|grep cups|sort
Random, have not found any pattern.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Press Ctrl-P in open Office after having opened a document.
A print dialogue with only "Options" and "Cancel" buttons available.
A print dialogu with "Cancel" and "Print" buttons available.
To my embarrasment I have to admit I am not sure if the text on the first
button was "Options". When i got this bug today, I shut down Writer, opened the
same file in Abiword to get it printed.
As this has happened a lot since I installed FC6. (FC5 never gave me this
problem), I decided to file a bug report.
As I tried to reproduce the error to give the right text on the buttons, the
print dialogue was correct. Therefore I must give you the correct text the next
time I see the error.
I will do some testing to see if I can find any pattern which produces the wrong
dialogue, as soon as I get a bit of time. (I have to go for a business trip the
two next days.) It might be related to starting a new session, or rebooting.
So the "Print" button is missing, not grayed out, but actually not in the dialog ?
Should be ok in the next FC-6 update due shortly

Sorry for not giving you a proper reply earlier. Business and family have kept
me away from my email for a while.
It sounds like you have found and fixed the bug? Great service, thank you very
I submit two screenshots of the problem, just in case it might be of any
