Description stegerpl 2007-11-01 21:55:47 UTC
On my platform (AMD 64X2) with gentoo LINUX installation both the 
openoffice-bin (openoffice-bin/openoffice-bin-2.3.0.ebuild,v 1.5 2007/09/20 
13:25:59 suka) as well as the compiled package (openoffice-2.3.0.ebuild v 1.14 
2007/10/20 19:43:55 dertobi123) does not allow me to print from openbase. 

The print command (menu item as well as icon) is accepted but it is not passed 
over to the printing system (cups as well as direct printing via LPD). No 
error messages appear as well as no messages within the logs.

In addition the preview item is disabled (as menue as well as icon) but will 
be active after I export via PDF directly. Then I may print from within the 

However also the export via PDF directly only shows the form sheet and the 
images but no text.

I am connecting to my database set up within openbase 2.1 via JDBC using Sun 
JRE 1.6.0

Please check for a bug - further information on request...

best regards

where do you want to use the print command?

What do you want to print?

Do you install 32-bit version of OOo and Java?

I tried to print from within openbase (oobase => open an existing database => 
open formsheet) by using both the menu item as well as the icon for direct 

As described I set up a database with a formsheet and I wanted to print the 
formsheet with one dataset (text, numbers and one image).

My general setup is 64-Bit Versions of all programs far long as available, 
which was not the case for OpenOOffice 2.2 and Sun Java 1.6.0 but I expect 
that OpenOffice 2.3 was 64-Bit in the bin as well as the compiled version and 
Java was build in a mixed version as can bee seen from the following output.

$ java -showversion
    java version "1.6.0"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.6.0-b105, mixed mode)

I hope this may help you... If you need further info or experiments, please 
contact me.

Pretty sure this is another example of the same problem as in Issue 

I'm using x86_64 under Kubuntu 7.1 with SUN java - same problem, can not print 
a form or wizard created report, however the same workaround as in windows 
works here also. Save the form or report to an odt file, open it and it prints 
without a problem.

Sun Report Builder reports print directly without the problem.
