Description Matthew Francis 2015-01-27 08:15:55 UTC
Observed on Ubuntu 14.04 / LO Not reproduced on LO

This was observed using a cups-pdf virtual PDF printer, but I don't believe that it is specific to this.

Steps to reproduce
1. Create a blank Writer document
2. Type any small amount of random text
3. Open File - Print and select a printer
4. Open "Properties..." in the General tab
5. In the "Device" tab, set "Printer language type" to "Postscript Level 3"
6. Click "OK" in the Properties dialog
7. Click "OK" in the Print dialog

Expected result
- File prints

Actual result
- LO hangs with a "Printing" progress dialog open

Same symptoms as Matthew:
Same steps to reproduce
independent of which printer (HP, cups PDF)
Only with Postscript language.
LO freezes on print.
