Description Jonathan Thomas 2008-01-13 23:51:46 UTC
Version:           0.6 (using KDE KDE 4.0.0)
Compiler:          gcc 
OS:                Linux

I was trying to print a PDF that was to be printed as a landscape. I noticed that it was printing vertically; it was as if it was printing the PDF as a portrait.
So I went and tried to print it again with "Portrait" selected. This time the PDF printed as a landscape. Very weird; it seems the two options were reversed somehow.

Hej Thomas,

could you send us a test document, please? Or is it reproducable
with any document?

Created attachment 23810 [details]
the pdf

Sure thing.

When I print this as landscape, about a third of the printed page is cut off.
However when I print the pdf as a portrait, the printed paper prints as it
should, as a landscape.

This is the only PDF I've seen that does this.

Can you still reproduce this bug with recent KDE and QT versions ? (KDE 4.1 or 4.0.5 and QT 4.4)

Got this problem with all my PDF files on Fedora 9 systems.

I reported this bug to the Fedora comunity:

It still persists in version which was released today.

This week's updates of kde and cups for Fedora 9 solved the problem at my system

I think I have a pretty similar problem like the described one. If you have a pdf which is already formated as landscape (like the attachment) and you print with the landscape option, it will cut off after ~ 2/3 of the page. If you set the 	alignment to portrait it will be printed correctly.

okular 0.7.1

Can anyone still reproduce this bug with a recent KDE version? (4.1.3 / 4.2beta2 / 4.2svn) ?  Thanks :)

Apparently this is a bug in the CUPS packages for any debian-based distro. It has been fixed in Debian experimental and Kubuntu Jaunty. (See https://launchpad.net/bugs/47649)
