Won't get around to looking at this until at least Tuesday, can you make sure its LibreOffice causing the problem, or if the print output is ok and get mangled on the way to the printer e.g.

a) export to pdf and open in evince and see if the exported .pdf looks ok/not ok. And if ok if its printed from evince that it then works or fails
b) if that's ok, then try print to file and open in evince, etc.

I just performed the tests on a different computer with a different printer.  
All tests passed.   I was even able to print properly directly from oowriter to the printer.

Maybe this problem is coming from CUPS?

I can test again from the original computer and printer tomorrow at 16:00 UTC.

please do, see for some help in getting printer details and so forth.

I just ran "yum update" and the problem went away.
