Description of problem:
I've installed an HP BusinessJet 2250TN using the provided PPD. I've tried both
the foomatic and hpjs ones.
After installing the drivers from adobe and putting them to the shares using
cupsaddsmb the users are able to connect and print.
When a Windows 2K User prints a slide from Powerpoint and explicitly chooses
landscape instead of portrait the page is nevertheless not rotated on the printout.
I've tried using OpenOffice from ny Client and it uses the correct orientation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.setup for printing from windows
2.open any presentation (Powerpoint
3.Set the printing properties to print landscape and print
Actual Results: The page gets printed in portrait mode instead of landscape mode
Expected Results: The page should have been printed in landscape mode
I've also tried using the HP Provided PPD (which contains far more options to
configure in both cups and windows) file to see whether this fixes the problem
but was not able to print even a testpage from windows. It ends up printing the
postscript as ascii text.
