Can't print to Ledger or Tabloid paper in K7.04 - SOLVED

Postby lgharriman » Mon May 14, 2007 5:56 pm

I recently purchased the 2.1.3.0 pro version. I am unable to print to tabloid or ledger size using Kubuntu 7.04. I can print in Windows XP without any problems. I only get a partial print which is letter size. I made sure the paper size is correctly selected in Qcad and also the printer setup. Any suggestions?

If I export to a PDF file and print from Acroread it prints correctly except the filled hatch ares are not filled at all.

WORKAROUND SOLUTION: 06/01/2007
1 - Install new printer giving it the name of HP1220C-Tabloid (Change accordingly to match your printer.)
2 - Use Print manager and change INSTANCES settings.
3 - Change to desired paper size (Tabloid in my case). Be sure to select POSTER and change it also.
4 - Save Settings.
5 - Restart X session (CTRL ALT BACKSPACE)
6 - New printer model should show up in all programs as another printer.

I can now print directly from QCAD and other programs without conveting to PDF format first.

Thank you for your tip! :-)
Printing is always a tricky thing on Linux/UNIX.
