    Cannot print PDF files

    I cannot print pdf files. I have tried using okular and xpdf. The documents display in the program, but print preview shows a blank page. The printer then sends out blank pages. I have tried printing on 2 different printers using usb cables.
    Using terminal to process the commands shows error:
    xxx@xxx:~$ xpdf
    ***** MediaBox = ll:0,0 ur:611.976,791.968
    ***** CropBox = ll:0,0 ur:611.976,791.968
    ***** Rotate = 0
    Segmentation fault
    Converting to .ps also is blank.
    I am using natty.

    Can you report what versions of software you are using? I just printed a PDF with no problems in Kubuntu 11.04 using Okular 0.12.2.

    Re: Cannot print PDF files

    Sorry but I'm just not sure of what factors are causing problems for you. Does the behavior vary from PDF to PDF or does printing always cause a segmentation fault?

    I still don't know what's causing this but here's another similar topic (though people there are saying that okular performs better than Adobe reader):

    Reporting back that issue is resolved now. I reinstalled CUPS and okular. I'm sure the upgrade messed something up in those packages. Should have tried that first.
