I have some problems between  LibreOffice and CUPS.

Some of printings don't work.

I have a debian server with CUPS and all the printers are configured.

In local, i have configured CUPS with the file : /etc/cups/client.conf in order to use the debian server to print.

Sometimes, printers disappeared when we want to print, we only see Generic Printer.

And we can have all printers but we need to launch twice the task.

It seems LibreOffice is not connected to CUPS even if all others software works fine (like Adobe, kpdf, iceweasel )

In order to print, we need to close LO and open again the document or we can go to : File -> Printer settings .. (Fichier -> Param├ętrages de l'imprimante .. )

How i can solve this problem ?

Thanks for your help.




Are you using a print server? Also, what is the OS LO is running on?

If the LO is running on Linux you might try using SAMBA to manage printing. It should be in your repository.

Which printers work and which ones do not?

You are using which distro of Linux, Debian, Ubuntu, etc., to run the server on?

Are you accessing the print server using a Windows, Mac, or Linux. It sounds like a Linux system, so we could use that version of Linux as well.

Yes, sometimes the config file for LO on Linux get corrupted, or at least for me it did on Ubuntu. I had troubles with LO not being able to print correctly for duplexing on an Epson printer. Since all of the printers are "attached" to the CUPS system, that was a concern to me. It was fixed by a print option that is no longer part of LO's Linux print "options" anymore. It seems not to need it now.

For now, you might want to use Export to PDF or have CUPS-PDF installed locally. You create a PDF version of the document and use you default PDF viewer to print the document out to the correct printer.

Have you tried renaming your LO personal profile and then let LO create a new one. That usually work for printer issues, or it did the last time I had a corrupt printer.

For me, on Ubuntu 12.04, I go to the hidden folder of
I rename it to
with the date I saved it in the folder name.
When LO restarts, it recreates the config folder with a fresh copy. This usually fixed printer issues and errors.
