Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 242993
gnumeric fails to print landscape output
Last modified: 2008-11-26 10:00:57 EST
Description of problem:
Despite selecting "Landscape" from the Print->Paper->PageOrientation dialog, the
spreadsheet is always printed in a portrait orientation. Selecting portrait
also results in portrait. This occurs for both HP printers and PDF output.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(used to work with gnumeric from fc6 fedora-extras)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create simple spreadsheet
2. Under File menu, select Print.
3. Print tab: select "Create a PDF document"
4. Job tab: defaults
5. Paper tab: "Paper Size" -> Letter, "Page Orientation" -> Landscape
6. Layout tab: Plain
7. Click "Print Preview" button
... displays proper landscape orientation
8. Click "Print" button
... PDF displays as portrait, or Postscript printer prints as portrait
Printed output is portrait (narrow/upright) orientation
Printed output is portrait (wide/sideways) orientation
Could this be associated with the shift to using gutenprint?
(cut and paste error - should be:)
Printed output is landscape (wide/sideways) orientation
Downgrading to the libgnomecanvas + libgnomeprint from FC-6 fixes this.
Only downgrading libgnomeprint has no effect, only downgrading libgnomecanvas
leads to a landscape print on a portrait page (text verticalled centered and the
right chopped of)
Changing component and assignee to libgnomecanvas.
This issue prevails in Fedora 8 for me on x86_64, with version gnumeric-1.6.3-13.fc8
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This works in Fedora 9
So I'll proactively close this, since it's fixed in a maintained version.
