Hi :)
Posting a bug-report would be a great help
The trick is trying to attract a dev to look at it.  

If there is an existing bug-report it might help them to know of a version or 2 where it does work 
and a version or 2 where it doesn't.  Devs are particularly interested in the 4.0.0 right now.  
It's not due for release until the new year so now is an excellent time to report bugs in the 
pre-release, beta-testing versions.  

If the 3.6.4 did work then i would go back to that and stay with the 3.6.x branch until either the 
bug-report indicates it's a good time to move to the 4.0.x or when the 4.0.4 gets released.  

Postscript, Printer settings.
Was this under 

File - "Printer Settings" -

Then in the pop-up dialogue-box 

Properties - Device (2nd tab) - "Printer language type"

set the drop-down list to Postscript?  But i thought POstscript was the default so i'm not sure why 
it would switch to Pdf.  I guess most people want it as Pdf so maybe the default has been changed 
in the 4.0.x branch.  

MySql Connector
I think this has to be compiled.  The best way to get the best one for your machine is to compile 
it for yourself on the machine you use it on.  When someone else compiles it it's a fairly generic 
result that should work on a good range of machines.  Compiling it yourself is tough but it's like 
getting a tailor-made suit rather than one off the shelf.  Alex has been a total star about 
compiling generic ones that work well for a lot of people.  

Ideally we would have a table of ones that worked well in both (all 3?) current branches and 
perhaps ones for previous branches too.  At the moment we seem to lose the ones for the older 
branches when the newest one is uploaded.

Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] LO 4.0- Beta2

I have the same issue with v4.0 that I had under earlier LO-versions, i.e.
printing in landscape mode does not work correctly out of the box. Under earlier
versions I had to set some "option"-variable somewhere to specify printing in
Postscript-L2 mode. In that case things worked correctly. Do you intend to
fix this "bug"? If not - where is the variable I have to set to Postscript
mode under version 4.0?
By the way - I also miss the native MySQL-Connector that worked so beautifully
under 3.6.4?
Thanks for your help
With Christmas Greetings and all the best to LO during 2013...
