Does the latest update of openoffice.org-2.3.0-6.14.fc8 still exhibit this problem ?

ok, so I finally dragged my usb cable across to the F-8 testing box and it
"works for me"(tm) fine.

a) Can you try to print to file *as postscript* from the dialog and then load
that ps in evince and see if printing from evince with copies > 1 works or fails
b) And you could try toggling tools->options->openoffice.org->general->"use
openoffice.org dialogs"  to use the older OOo printing dialog and see if that
makes a difference.
Comment 4 Pavel Urban 2008-04-28 05:24:37 EDT
a) Printing to file doesn't make any difference.
b) I don't have such option in this menu. There are 'Update' and 'Settings
(Measurement Unit, Tab stops)' options only. Are you using the same version as
me? FC8, KDE environment, openoffice.org-core-2.3.0-6.14.fc8
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2008-04-30 11:24:20 EDT
So if you print to file as .ps and open it in evince and attempt to print
multiple copies you still only get one copy, right ?

If so then it sounds more like a generic issue than one specific to OOo itself.
Can you attach that sample output .ps here and I can see I can print multiple
copies of it here locally.

in relation to b), then I refer to under GNOME not KDE. Running under GNOME is
worth a shot just to double check that.
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2008-08-30 11:58:31 EDT
I was never able to reproduce this, as its such a basic thing to honour "copies" and there are no other reports, it must be specific to a particular unknown configuration of OOo or printer driver :-(
