Printing Gnumeric spreadsheets in KDE

#1 Post by eemaestro » Sat Sep 27, 2014 1:45 pm

I use gnumeric in MEPIS12 KDE to tabulate and analyze spreadsheet data (text). However, gnumeric is a GNOME app, and gives me an error message when I try to print from gnumeric.

I want to print the table in landscape mode, that is along the long edge of an 8.5x11" page.

So, I tried copying the data to LibreOffice writer and to LibreOffice calc. I got printouts, but only in portrait mode, not in landscape mode even though I selected landscape mode as a printer settings option for my laser printer before printing. I tried three different formats, .gnumeric, .csv, and .pdf. None converted the text to landscape
mode.

Any other ideas on how I might do this? As in gimp or ps or inkscape or ?

Could it be there's a hardware option on my hp LaserJet 2200dse that needs to be set to make it print to the paper in landscape mode ?

Did you already try clicking in LO Format > Page > Page tab, and changing from Portrait to Landscape?

Not until you suggested it, Jerry3904. I just did it in LO Calc. It worked, both in Page Preview and when I printed it.
Thank you, Jerry3904, for solving this problem.
