I'm using LibreOffice 3.4.4 from the Mageia 1 repositories with KDE, trying to print to a Deskjet 5650 printer, and I'm having problems with this, too. My problem is related to that experienced by the Arch user in your second link, in that landscape -oriented spreadsheets from Calc aren't printing properly - to say the least. Mine prints fine until it gets to the 8.5 inch mark, then it prints a truncated version of the last column over and over until the edge of the paper. Print Preview looks fine, and while I haven't tried it yet I suspect printing to a pdf file would work, too.

Changing the printer language to Postscript fixes it. I haven't noticed the problem with other applications yet, but then I don't print much as a regular rule, just this time of year.

I didn't have the problem last year, when I was using Mandriva 2010.2 and OpenOffice.

I can try to remember to change the printer language on every document I make in the future, but like Mr. Jordan I think it's a pain in the butt to remember to change it if I go to print old documents. I tried running spadmin as root to change the default, but for some reason Mageia wouldn't do it. Probably just as well, as I'm very much out of my element when it comes to command line noodling.

It shouldn't have to be that way, anyway. There should be an easy way to make Postscript the default, if you want.
