[SOLVED] LibreOffce printing issue

Postby ramack » 2020-02-08 00:29

Last week I had been printing to my HP 2420 laser printer from Writer without any issues. Today I'm unable to print from Writer as I had been able to do. I am getting fonts are all garbled, see URL below. It seems to be happening with only LibreOffice Writer. Calc, Draw prints ok. Websites print ok from FireFox. Eric prints texts ok. So does Notepad.

The font is times new roman.

No hardware or software changes have been made, upgrade, dist-upgrades etc. I'm trying to resolve without doing a microsoft solution of rebooting.

Try renaming ~/.config/libreoffice . Then open LibreOffce and try printing again. If this works the problem was something you did inadvertently. If not you can rename the file again and put it back where it was.

Sweet! Bulkley that fixed it.

Any ideas what I did? I can't recall anything at all that I might have done.....

Thanks again, marking this SOLVED.
