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
wget ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/download....1.fc6.i386.rpm
wget ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/download....1.fc6.i386.rpm
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.
