I did some testing and see what you mean.
When printing form Windows 7 to Ubuntu everything is fine. (What I
When printing form Ubuntu to itself, no luck (I use this very infrequently.)
I believe Ghostscript is used to generate the PDF file in Debian based
It may be that the call to Ghostscript from LibreOffice does not include
page adjustment from the command.
* |-dAutoRotatePages=/None| -- retains orientation of each page;
* |-dAutoRotatePages=/All| -- rotates all pages (or none) depending on a
kind of "majority decision";
* |-dAutoRotatePages=/PageByPage| -- auto-rotates pages individually.
Although the following is in reference to Windows, the hand-off may be
Ghostscript attempts to set the Windows printer page size and
orientation to match that expected by Ghostscript, but doesn't always
succeed. It uses this algorithm:
1. If the requested page size matches one of the Windows standard page
sizes +/- 2mm, request that standard size.
2. Otherwise if the requested page size matches one of the Windows
standard page sizes in landscape mode, ask for that standard size in
3. Otherwise ask for the page size by specifying only its dimensions.
4. Merge the requests above with the defaults. If the printer driver
ignores the requested paper size, no error is generated: it will
print on the wrong paper size.
5. Open the Windows printer with the merged orientation and size.
The Ghostscript physical device size is updated to match the Windows
printer physical device.
Regretfully I do not know enough to assist further in linux.

Well, The last time I tried a landscape page through CUPS-PDF, the
file was in Portrait but the page was in Landscape so you have to read
it sideways if you wanted to read it through the PDF viewer. Printed
page fine, viewed as a file, not fine.
I have it set for automatic orientation. But it does not seem to
create a landscape viewable file to read via a PDF viewer. Prints a
landscape document just fine, since you are actually printing a

I have not set my HP printers [laser and wide-format inkjet] up for

Same settings with my Canon inkjets.
EXPORT to PDF within LO will create a readable file in the orientation
of the document, not the paper path of the printer. So if you have a
document that is 11x8.5 due to the content in the page, you can see it
properly as a landscape document. CUPS-PDF cannot do that, or so my
testing tells me.
SO, that is why I would love to have the option to embed all the used
fonts in the document. It solves the output orientation issues that I
have with CUPS-PDF. I would like my landscape documents readable in
that orientation in a PDF viewer by the people I send the documents
too and have all of the special fonts included. Right now I do not
have that option. The reader needs to print the landscape document
out to read it in the CUPS option or not use the special fonts for the
See my problem[s]?
I tend not to use my Win7 boot of my laptops, or my laptops at all,
for any real document creation and editing. Everything is done on my
desktop, which is currently Mint 16. [later it should go to Ubuntu
14.04LTS]. That is where I have all my data, images, etc., stored -
on three 2-TB internal drives formatted to Linux's ext3 or ext4
format. [have three USB 2-TB as backup drives formated the same]
So if I went to Win7, I would have to do a lot of saving onto flash
drives to do the work on the laptop's Win7 OS boot, or even their
Ubuntu 13.xx/14.xx boots. I tend not to move my backup drives from
their resting spot near the desktop.
