libreoffice-6.1.0-x86_64-1alien no postscript


Is anyone else experiencing no postscript output in Eric's Current
LibreOffice?

Both 'print to file' and sending to a postscript printer have no
content. It seems to produce a valid ps file, but no text (I haven't
tried graphics). Using pdf format for either does work.

Previously I was using libreoffice-6.0.4-x86_64-2alien on Current and
postscript was working fine.

I haven't used this feature before but can confirm it outputs a file with no content when using 'print to file'.

I use Print to File a lot, no problem with PDF. There is no selection for .ps (Didn't there used to be?), have to enter manually.

Saving a file, can see the contents in Dolphin, opening in Okular shows empty file. LibreOffice opens the file in Draw, imports into Gimp, as a PDF. Looking at the beginning of the file first line of file is "%PDF-1.4".

With PDF, I should note that no problem is incorrect, depending of the content, layout is off when printing PDF versus actual printer. In my case, livable.

Under Tools-->Options then Print, unset the "PDF as standard print job format".

Then you should have .ps back.

Tried that. Yes, does give back the Post Script "option" when selecting from the Save window. Aside from that the file is basically blank when viewing.

Saving to PDF (manually) saves in the same format as the "PostScript" option.

I am fairly certain in older versions selecting Post Script or Portable Document Format was available at some point during the process of printing to file. Could be wrong, but don't think so.

I have been experimenting with orbea's libreoffice script for the last little while and I see that it produces a working ps file under 6.0.6.2.

The problem seems to be fixed in Eric's latest package:
libreoffice-6.1.2-x86_64-1alien.txz

Thank you Eric!
