Re: [Evolution] I can not print, other users can

Printing to a file in PS or PDF formats will not open in ghostview, ggv,
or acroread.  When I do the same PS and PDF formats with the account
that can print, they open fine.

Just for clarification: Account? So the other account that can print is
on the very same machine?

Yes I have my main account which cannot print.  I also have a test
account which can print OK.  Both accounts on the same RH-8.0 machine.

My main account was previously on a Solaris machine so I am guessing
there is some crazy stuff left behind and is hosing RH and Evolution.

Well, I am likely not the best one to discuss printing in Evolution,
cause I almost never do it. However, some thoughts to get this sorted
out (sorry if they might be answered already):

- AFAIK there are no printing settings in Evolution. I just grepped
  the files in ~/.gconf/apps/evolution/ to verify.
- The only printing related settings are fonts. Have you checked your
  font settings? Compared to the settings of the working account?
- Is only Evolution affected or does printing fail with other Gnome apps
  as well? The settings (if any) could be Gnome related rather than
  Evolution specific. Or even related to some env variables inherited
  from the Solaris account...

There is a quick way to check if this is Evolution specific or not:
Create a test account and copy your Evolution date over to this account.
Can you print from that account?

The relevant directories to copy are:

This likely will break filters and vFolders. [1] Don't worry about them.
To start Evolution *without* retrieving mails on the test account run

$ evolution --offline

Hope, this will get you closer to the solution...


[1] But this can be corrected with a simple sed script.

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
