If that is the case, it may be a problem with the config users files.
I don't recall how long ago, as it's been a while since I printed an
envelope.  However, it's a Dell 1110 with the Dell 1110 Foomatic/gdi
drivers.  However, further testing reveals it may be a printer problem,
as I can print to PDF properly.

I have has issues with a certain printer while other worked fine.  The
issue was that the laser printer was "stuck" printing in the 4 page per
sheet mode, but would only print one of the very small pages per sheet,
instead of 4.  I never used that mode before. The other printers would
print normally.  The only other time was when a printer would bot duplex
print when it did a few days before.  Both needed the user config folder
to be recreated. For some reason, sometimes a "gremlin" decided to mess
up one of the config files and I cannot find where it was mess with.  So
recreating the folder works.  I just then have to add the extensions
needed.  No problems there.

I never had any luck with finding a Dell printer driver for Ubuntu, or
at least the ones I have had given to me to "pass on to others if
needed".  So I stick with HP and Canon [need to go to the UK site since
the US site does not support Linux].

Just to add a bit into the mix, I am finding the same doesn't-want-to-print-
landscape in LO Writer. This is with Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon, 64-bit and a
Brother HL-2270DW laser printer. (The driver is the built-in CUPS driver.)
Funny thing is, it printed landscape fine until recently! Turn the file into
a pdf, open it in Document Viewer (i.e., Evince), and it prints in landscape
just fine. Perhaps the same would be true of Calc creations, as well?
Changing the .config user file in order to force the creation of a new one
achieved nothing, for me.

Sometimes is works, and sometimes it does not. But for me, more than half of my printer issues were from corrupted user config files.

Right now I run Linux Mint with MATE. There was chatter on their web site about Cinnamon having a lot of issues, a lot more than their MATE version. I use to run Ubuntu 12.04/MATE and will try 14.05/MATE when it comes out.

The OP had Portrait issues and you have Landscape issues. There is another thread talking about duplex issues. For some reason, some "specific" setups of Linux seems to have some "weird" printer issues that may not show up on other users with the same version of Linux and LO.
