General "options" in the 3.6.4 versions.

With my 64-bit Debian install, there is a section for "Print dialogs"
and the option for that is "Use LibreOffice dialogs".

With my install on Windows 7 professional, that "Print dialogs" section
is missing.

I do not know if it is missing in my Windows installs for earlier
versions of LO, since I updated all my Windows systems to 3.6.4 last month.

I know, for Ubuntu, I need to click that check box in order to get LO to
print duplex pages properly for my Epson Artisan 810 printer. With that
option, both my HP Laserjet 2300dn and Canon MG6220 [inkjet] printers
are duplexing properly as well.

I am running Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit OS with MATE desktop environment and
Win7/pro 64-bit systems[plus Ubuntu 10.04 and Win XP/pro]  So my Linux
system show it, but my Windows systems do not.

It there a reason that DEB installs need that option and Windows do not?
Probably for the same reason that you don't have spadmin in Windows
versions... (CUPS etc).


Well there should be no difference with the print dialogs between 
versions.  Are you going to use the systems "default" print dialogs or 
the package's?  Checking the box does not change the print dialogs used 
for LO.  It is always LO's dialogs instead of the one that the other 
packages use.  So either way, it uses a different print dialog than the 
Ubuntu/Debian default print dialog used by packages like Firefox or GIMP.

The Ubuntu linux distro supplied version does indeed work.

LibreOffice 3.5.4.
Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)
This product was supplied by The Document Foundation, Debian and Ubuntu.

When unchecked, LO(U) uses the GTK print dialog.

It does not work in the linux LO Versions:
o LibreOffice
Build ID: 3215f89-f603614-ab984f2-7348103-1225a5
o (Build ID: 2ef5aff)
o (Build ID: 4104d660979c57e1160b5135634f732918460a0)
version. (It probable doesn't work in the LODev4 version because there
is no 'Enable experimental (unstable) features'.)

So file a bug report. Or add to an existing one:


[Use LibreOffice dialogs option for print dialog is ignored]
