You have me all quizzy now about it too. I own a Brother MFC-J6510DW
large format multifunction printer, quite a process to set it up in
Ubuntu (like you from 10.04 to present 13.04) and this box was ticked by
default in LO's settings. I will experiment with it unticked and see if
it affects my printer.

Why it is listed in the Linux [Ubuntu 10.04LTS and 12.04LTS for me
back then] and not in the Windows installs, I was never given a good
answer. I was told that "it was just needed for Linux and not for
Windows". Then the fact that for some printers the check box needed
to be checked, while other did not, tended to make the issue a little
worse to figure out.

OK, you are correct in that there is an extra dialogue box for the
Linux version of LO, in my case LO 188.8.131.52 running under Ubuntu
130.04 Raring Ringtail. See the screenshots below now from Linux. If
others want to see this then I will make an entry on Nabble.
The print settings seem the same except for the extra tick box to do
"PDF as Standard Print Job Format"

As to my statement, here is a screenshot of the Windows version of

see what you are referring to. You should see these screenshot, but
it will be stripped when forwarded onto the global mail.
Nothing under the "Print" section

I do not think the Print dialogs would be, or should be, listed
under open/save dialogs section. That would not make sense. Are
you saying the "print dialogs" check box is actually listed in that
section of the "General" dialog box?
Well, I have not installed 4.1 yet, but the "Print dialogs" option
was shown on the DEB 64-bit version [Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04
installed] and not on the Windows version [Win7 professional and
home premium installed]
When I was having all my issues with my printer[s] not duplexing
correctly, it seemed that most of the people who tried to help were
Windows users. None of the even suggested the "print dialog"
check/uncheck option. After a few weeks, I just started
experimenting and found that checking the "print dialogs" option
would make the Epson Artisan 810 printer duplex correctly. The HP
Laserjet 2300dn duplexing worked either way. Now that I have a
Cannon MG6220 to replace the Epson, I have not unchecked that box
to see if the duplexing still worked.

One correction, your last statement, the option to check "Use

the "General" settings it's under the heading "Open/Save dialogues".

On a Debian like system (Mint 14), my newly installed 32-bit

issue is trying to print specific pages within a Writer

specific pages text box. In order to make this work - i.e. to
select the pages I wanted - I closed LibO4.1. and re-opened it,
then it worked.
Anybody else experienced this?
I've had two relatively minor issues with Writer LibO-4.1
(password-related and the page selection for printing mentioned
here) which don't really inspire confidence as these are
features that have been preserved since the OOo days ... so not
at all sure why they don't work as expected with the 4.1 release.
Anyway, will continue to test 4.1 for a while, but am inclined
to roll back to 4.0.4 for doing work at this point.
I do not use Mint due to printer issues. The biggest one
wasthatit would not recognizeor even find it on my network my
main network color printer that Ubuntu has not problems
finding/using. But it would see it via a USB cable. I had other
printer/driver issues for it to print "properly" on the other
printers on my network.
You are running 32-bit Mint 14? Mate or Cinnamon desktop?
You removed the previously installed version of LO, correct?
Did you have any problems with 4.0.4 printing page selections?
In Tools / Options / LibreOffice / General
have you checked "Use LibreOffice dialogs" in the "Print dialogs"
Check it if not. If already checked [which I used for Ubuntu
12.04LTS] then un-check it. See if that changes anything. This
option does not show up with the Windows users, so they would not
know this. I had to check it to get one of my printers to duplex
properly. I am told others need to have it unchecked for their
