Hi again Ken,
There is some odd going on here. I don't use LO
often, most of my writing is done with Lyx, which then outputs as a
PDF and I print from there. Have just looked at LO and found that
when it was asked to print, to either my little Brother laser,or an
elderly HP Deskjet, the landscape paper option was greyed out,
just like yours. These results came on a desktop, running MX-15
Linux. Looked as if LO was deciding that the files would fit onto
portrait and not giving me the option to change.
I'll do some more digging. Think I have LO on a laptop with XP,
will dig it out .Perhaps somebody else will pop upon the forum
with an answer.
This was brought out in an earlier thread. Go to Print -> options tab
and check "Use only paper size from printer preferences."
That should enable paper sizes and orientation selection in the print
It does not. :-(
However, I discovered I can go to the printer's defaults, and set
landscape there, choose the "Use only..." setting in LO, and I get the
landscape layout when the spreadsheet is printed.
What I'm taking away from this is, it is a problem with LO 5.0.x that
comes with Mint 17.3 Rosa.
So I still need to go somewhere to find out how I install the current
version after I have it downloaded.
Thanks for the help and suggestions, everyone.
The grayed out paper size/orientation in the print dialog I responded
to, is a separate issue brought up by Gordon and seemed to have started
with LO 5.x. Don't know about 4.x. LO 3.x did not exhibit this
"feature" AFAIK. OpenOffice 4.x does not exhibit this either, but then
it is a different beast now.
