Hi Robert Grimmitt!

Which version of OpenOffice are you using? There was a version (1.0.3) shipped with a small bug. They have released a patch to fix the printing issue. If you have any other version I don't know, once I have never ever been able to use my printer (HD Deskjet 500) under Linux, nor either anyone seems how to use it . here is the link to the patch:

Good luck!

Thanks for your prompt reply. I have version 1.0.2, but the
problem applies in koffice, emacs or any other source, so seems to be something to do with printer itself I guess.
