I know the answer makes no sense but if you turn off the visual effects under the appearance tab the printing will come back.

It might help if you mentioned your distro.

Ah yes, I see. Well, openoffice in 8.10 appears to be missing two files. I had to import them from my 8.04 system, then it ran just perfectly. I would suggest that you search google for the details, I'm afraid I don't remember them. Also, I have recently switched to 9.04. OO is working just fine on that one.
