Template file

I have created a template to print generic labels. The template has four frames and inside each frame tables are defined. When the ODT file is printed from the UI, I get desired output. But, when printed from command line (Redhat Linux), the table rows are merged. I am using the following command to print the odt file from command line.

soffice -pt <printer name> <odt file>

Generating a PDF file from command line did not solve the issue. Can someone help me with this issue?

Command Line Printing Distorting Table Rows In 

Bug Reproduced:Yes

Make: Gateway
CPU:AMD A6-3400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
OS: Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca x86_64
Printer: HP LaserJet 1320 connected with USB cable
OpenOffice Version: 4.1.1


1.) 	Clean Installed Linux Mint 17.1

2.) 	Uninstalled Libre Office.

3.) 	Downloaded Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.1_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-    US.tar.gz from Apache 	website

4.) 	Installed through command line instructions on Apache website

5.) 	Downloaded file from bug report

6.) 	Opened a terminal in the location of the download

7.)	Used "soffice -pt hp-LaserJet-1320 label.odt" to print

8.) 	Printed the form in the incorrect format with the text stack onto	each other exactly as "Template 	after printing from command line" file from original poster.

After I printed the file in the incorrect format I then launched the application and printed it from the IU . The form came out in the correct format and uncorrupt. I changed the size of the table, the font, and the background color each independently and printed the file and still would collapse the boxes like the attached PDF.
