Hi :)
I was hoping that changing the setting in 

File - "Printer Settings" 

would change the default setting.  

An alternative would be to copy the User Profile from either your Gnu&Linux or your Windows machine 
into the place where your new profile should be

but after doing that it might be wise to reinstall the upgraded version of LO just in case there 
are new settings for certain things that need to overwrite the older settings.  Note that the User 
Profile can supposedly be copied between different platforms, between Windows, Gnu&Linux and Mac 
but it's probably best done before doing an install or upgrade just to make sure.  

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Hi Tom,
Regarding the printer default "language"...
PDF was the default also in version 3 - at least as far as I remember!
However, one could change it PERMANENTLY by setting some configuration
"switch". I know I can change the language every time I print something
but, obviously, I don't want to do this every time when having to print
in landscape mode.
I do have 3.6.4 installed on a laptop under both Linux and Windows. There
everything works fine. I simply wanted to call attention to this issue.
I suppose I will have to report a bug...
Regards H. S.

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.
Regards from
Tom :)

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...
