Description thomass 2014-04-24 13:28:47 UTC

after updating LibreOffice to version (from ubuntu 14.04 repository), I get an error dialog after sending a job to local cups server. This dialog contains this message:

  "I could not start the printer.
   Check printer configuration"

But printing starts and finishes without a visible problem.

This problems occurs on three different installations (all running Kubuntu 14.04).

(I have seen another bugreport (Bug 77311), which was wrongly closed as a duplicate of bug 76195, but 76195 is something completely different...)

Any help is most welcome!

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for reporting. I can confirm this.

(The problem with bug 77311 is that it reported more then one problem...)

I have the same issue also on several printers. Printing always starts even though the error message says there is a problem. I'm running LO on Ubuntu 14.04.
Comment 3 MR Zenwiz 2014-04-28 17:11:41 UTC
I can confirm that this also happens on LO running on Xubuntu 12.04.2 LTS.
Comment 4 James Fowlie 2014-04-29 21:30:45 UTC
I have the same issue on Ubuntu 14.04 AMD64 Desktop with LO

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later): https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

I do not recall having seen this since then.  AFAIC, you can consider this closed, but I'm not the OP.
