1.6.3: can't print in landscape

I'm using fedora core 6, but because I'm not nearly this good at ascii art, I've copied Debian bug 405385:

http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-bugs-dist lists debian org/msg287612.html


Package: Gnumeric
Version: 1.6.3

When printing a spreadsheet from gnumeric in landscape mode the text is printed perpendicular to the paper and extends off the edge.

For example, if one has created a spreadsheet which is to wide for printing in portrait such as this one:

|A wide |spreadhseet
|       |
|       |
|       |
|       |

You would try to print it in landscape:

| Landscape   |
|             |
|             |

But gnumeric is printing it like this (the text is also rotated 90 degress which I can't show here):

|        L    |
|        a    |
|        n    |

This problem shows up in both in print preview as well as actual printing.

There is an option in gnumeric page setup to rotate "feed orientation" 90 degrees but I believe this only refers to the way in which the printers feed mechanism works and is not related to the formatting of the text on the page as such. This does make the page show up correctly in print preview however, but my printer does not have a landscape paper feeder and so it will not print.

I believe this problem did no occur in Gnueric 1.4.3-4 in Debian Stable
I am using Gnumeric 1.6.3 in Debian Etch.

This may be related to a known bug in Gnumeric:
, though that bug is Gnumeric on MS Windows.
