Brother QL Template for Linux
used SUSE 12.3 Version 3.6:build-304 (Build ID: 360m1(Build:304))
if the bugs 55085, 57704, 65506 match this, I dont no.
with the Brother Label Printer QL-580N landscape printing failed, the output is in portrait Mode.
I use the original template from brother, see attachment.
in the printing dialog the view was correct, but the output comes in portrait.
portrait mode worked correct.
With the old version 3.2 from OpenOffice on the same maschine it worked correct, sorry.

Holger: 126.96.36.199 is quite old, could you give a try to a newer version 3.6.6 or even better a 4.0 branch like 4.0.3 or the brand new 4.0.4?
hmm, this is the SUSE Version im repo 12.3 ;-)
Yes, I have tested it before with my old system SUSE 11.4 and
Version 188.8.131.52 (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539)
from LibreOffice download
and have the same effect. I setting up the SUSE 12.3 last week and complete the system step bye step now.

Brother QL Template for Linux
Do you reproduce this on other softwares? I'm asking because it could also be a problem with Cups config and/or drivers
Sorry, I wrote in my first comment,
I can use the old version 3.2 from OpenOffice and it worked perfect, here on the same system.
So I think is not the problem with CUPS
Holger: thank you for your quick feedback. Sorry, I thought that there could have been config changes between the time you used OOo 3.2 and LO.
Michael: any idea how to investigate here?

the printout scan with OpenOffice on the same system
I will provide the hardware, if the developer is interested in, floeff shall order it.
I installed from SUSE factory-snapshot 184.108.40.206 but soffice failed
a strace soffice failed with exit 137
but this is a other problem, I rollback to SUSE repo 12.3
OK, in the first step SUSE Factory has no metadata and YAST can not work with it.
Now I come back and it worked
LibreOffice from SUSE Factory
Version 4.0:build-304 (Build ID: 400m0(Build:304))
the effect was the same, no landscape printing.
Feedback I received on what could be done:
"Installing the right pps (or whatever pdf printing uses these days), then printing to file, and then e.g. comparing the generated output with one for a
printer that is known to work is the next step."
I have just installed AOO
AOO341m1 (Build:9593) Rev1272282
landscape printing failed also
and now I compare with OOO-3.2
it worked perfect
Brother has no PPD for this printer,
printing in file worked, but it is differnt from the printer
I fetch now a OpenOffice 3.3.0 and the landscape printing worked perfect
I found the break, I fetch the old archive from
landscape printing worked with the Brother Label Printer QL-580N perfect
landscape printing failed
Almost certainly a duplicate of a rather long standing issue; thanks for the report.

The default print format 'PDF' break the output.
Do not use that!
