Re: [Evolution] Red-Carpet update breaks Printing


I can print from xpdf just fine. I can also print from OpenOffice, I think what happened that an update of gnomeprint broke only the 'pure-gnome' applications, as it were - gedit etc. Before I updated Evolution using Red-Carpet, I was able to print e-mails just fine. It's only after the update that things don't work. I guess I am at fault too since I didn't select the "Enable rollback" option in Red-Carpet. I also tried erasing the gedit package and reinstalling it from the Red Hat rpm; that didn't work either.

I don't have an answer for you, but...

I also have a problem with printing from Evolution, which started quite
a while ago when I updated Evo 1.4.x using Red Carpet, and which has
persisted through an upgrade to Evo 1.5.9.

If I printed, nothing would happen, and if I printed to a PDF file, and
tried to print it from say, xpdf, nothing would happen. Someone else
with a similar problem noticed that the default page size was set to A4
and changing it to US Letter would allow printing. I've been on a search
ever since for the trick to set the DEFAULT to US Letter. The Gnome
print code seems to get those setting from CUPS and all of my printers
were set to have US Letter as the default page size.  I was advised to
purse this on the gnome print mailing list, but never got an answer

What I never noticed until you just mentioned it was that I too only can select generic postscript printer and pdf file in the print dialog. So I
guess if I could figure out where the default page size was held for
this mythical default postscript printer I could set it to US letter.
