The same problem as https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80404
I have update the newest Brother driver, but the same problem.
Comment 5 tommy27 2014-06-24 04:18:07 UTC
do you have LibO printing issues just with the "real" Brother printer or even sending print jobs from LibO to PDF virtual printers that you cite on comment 2?

Hi again.

If I use PDFill, Microsoft XPS Document Writer and CutePDF Writer,in rc, the LibO print the first page and then LibO do a restart again.
If I use, I don't have any printer problems.
Is there a log file in LibO, and can I send it to You ?
Comment 8 tommy27 2014-06-24 06:25:33 UTC
so it's basically a regression of the 4.3.x branch and affect printing either on real printers and virtual printers

let me install a rc build and check if I can reproduce issue.
Comment 9 tommy27 2014-06-25 20:28:52 UTC

please retest against 4.3.0 RC2
Comment 12 retired 2014-07-27 12:36:12 UTC
setting to NEEDINFO as of comment 10 and 11.

Asger, once you've fully tested this bug and checked latest version, may I suggest to create a NEW clean bug with all info summarized.

We're at comment 12 now and haven't even confirmed this bug. So let's prevent this from becoming too messy and rather start with a new clean report in your own interest of getting this fixed.
