Lanscape Failure, cups-1.2.4, RHEL5.1
I migrated from RHEL4.6 with cups-1.1.22 to RHEL5.1 with cups-1.2.4 and I find that I can not print landscape.
This is using HP printers, direct to the socket 9100. I've tried several model, including:
HP LaserJet 4 with the hpijs driver
HP LaserJet 4000 with postscript driver
And several PPDs, bundled with foomatic and current ones from linuxprinting.org.
With '-o landscape' it still prints in portrait.
With '-o orientation-requested=4' there is no output, or it is rotated off the page.
Here is an example test:
date | lp -o landscape
I don't know where to turn or how to resolv this. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!
As it turns out this is a regression bug from RHEL4 to RHEL5/5.1 when they switched to paps. Sounds like RedHat will fix in RHEL5.2. I got around this by installing a version of paps from FC6.
rpm -e paps --nodeps
rpm -ivh paps-0.6.8-1.fc6.i386.rpm paps-libs-0.6.8-1.fc6.i386.rpm
This fixes the landscape bug and some other bugs with margins.
