My problem is somewhat different, I think, as I have no problem viewing or printing pdfs, even the ones I have created myself. It's just the LO extension doesn't show the content on the screen- all viewers such as evince, gimp show them fine.

I think it is a bug in Ubuntu, or possibly cups, but it sounds very related to an issue I'm having with Ubuntu 12.10. I'm a Realtor, and we have paid access to the court house records to get deeds, assessment information, etc. To print a deed that has been selected, I can view it in Chrome or Firefox like I always did. The individual deed pages are stored as tiff images on their server. If I wanted a copy of it, I would just print it as a pdf. I would use cups-pdf. Cups would show it fetching each image, but in the final document, all of the pages are blank in Ubuntu 12.10. I tried it on a machine with Ubuntu 12.04, and everything printed fine. On 12.10 I then tried printing a hard copy with the regular printer instead of a pdf . Once again it showed it was fetching each page, but the printer printed out blank pages. So this is an issue with Ubuntu 12.10 in some manner. I filed a bug report with Ubuntu here:

Nothing has happened since then. There have been no additions to my bug report. Maybe it would be helpful if you added your problem there.

I am using Ubuntu 12.10 and LO

Every month or so our church has a music practice which basically involves me reproducing sheet music and word sheets, then adding a photocopying licence number to each piece of music.

Typically I might scan 16 to 20 pages in a session. I am using the program "Simple Scan" to do this.

In the past it was straight forward to scan the music to a pdf document then use LO pdf importer to add the required text. The last few times I have tried to do this the document just opens as a series of blank pages. I know the pdf is OK because other pdf viewers show it.

I did use pdfEdit to fill the gap but this can no longer be used in Ubnuntu 12.10

Does anyone know how to resolve this? I could go back to using stickers with the required text, but using LO to add the text prior to printing is much simpler when it works.

God bless you
