View Full Version : Printing problems - Open Office only works

April 22nd, 2008, 05:38 AM
I have a HP laserjet 1300 and a HP deskjet HP5550. They both print out a "test page" OK and both work fine in Open Office. But in any of the imageing programmes (eye of gnome, Gwenview, gThumb) (and Xscan), they don't. Print manager tells me that the print job is being processed but nothing happens; and Imay wait for 1/4 hr or more. Sometimes I get a "print error". sometimes not.

Any suggestions? I've tried another couple of drivers but that didn't help.

If they work in OpenOffice they should work in the other gnome programs too.

In my experience that can happen when the paper configuration in the image programs are messed up. Check the properties and the size of the page you have selected.
