Hi Helen et al:

I had the same problem, and here's the fix:
In OO or LO, in the print dialogue, there is a "properties" button,
and from there, Device tab.

One of the dropdowns there is "Language". It defaults to PDF

If you instead select "Postscript (Level from driver)" then landscape
printing works.

It's a bug in OO and LO, and can be "fixed" for each
individual printing job.  Unfortunately, I haven't learned a way to
make the fix permanent.


I had the same problem with my Samsung printer that quit doing Landscape with my Mageia Linux distro. I found that it was not in fact a bug with LibreOffice but a problem with the printer driver. If the Brother uses SPL (Samsung Printer Language), and, it looks like it does, then you may have the same driver problem.

I solved my problem by installing the SpliX printer driver supported by the site (Linux Foundation). You can find the installation routine here:

If it solves the problem, the fix should be reported to both the Brother devs as well as the SpliX group so that they can update their printer compatibility page.

I no longer have to go to the properties button to change the settings on any of my print jobs.
