gnome trouble with landscape and opacity printing pdfs
I use Gnome (dropline 2.16.2) on Slack 11.
I have a pdf which is landscape and contains elements which should be partially transparent. When I try to print the pdf using evince (gnome's pdf viewer), the partially transparent elements are fully opaque. When I try to print from Acrobat Reader, the transparency works fine but it refuses to print landscape even when I select landscape in the Page Setup.
The work-around which does work is to evoke kprinter from Acrobat Reader, but this is rather inelegant.
Can anyone tell me how I can get Acrobat Reader to print landscape or evince to respect the transparency?
