I have not noticed any problems printing from Linux Mint 12. I would
check the default printer settings and test the printer with another
non-LO program to see if the problem is with the printer set up. The
printer could be set up to default everywhere to pdf not to postscript.

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.
Here is more information about this issue:
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
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.
