MX15 LO printing portrait half size in landscape (solved)


Post by Eadwine Rose » Fri Nov 13, 2015 9:54 am

I have a document that is regular portrait mode, size A4, which I wanted to print out and even though all my settings are correct both in LO and in the HPLIP Toolbox the page will print like 2 pages on one sheet and in landscape.

This was the very first printout for me in MX15

I looked online, saw someone with a similar problem, and saw a solution there too: http://askubuntu.com/questions/189704/l ... -half-size

Solution: removed printer and re-added it using http://localhost:631/printers/ and used the first driver available for the thing.

I figured I'd say something JUST in case someone else has the same problem and there is nothing wrong in the settings anywhere.
