Wrong date when printing

Postby MerciadriLuca » 2017-08-02 06:27

Hello,

Although
Code: Select all
# date
mercredi 2 août 2017, 09:17:45 (UTC+0200)

I get
"1/1/70" as a date at the end of each printed document. How can I solve this issue? Note that time is not correct, either: now it's shown 12:56 AM on the printed document.

Thanks.

So with "print" you mean that you print a file to a physical paper and that at whatever program you are using prints so called "Unix time" on it?

With some programs, the date does not appear (for example printing a LibreOffice document does not print the date, which is normal). Take the example of a web page: the date and hour appear at the bottom of each printed webpage. But these (wrong) values are not the system values, which are correct.

This could be Mozilla Bug 1362817

Yes. What's strange is that it happened since I updated Debian from Wheezy to Jessie!

why is it strange?
maybe the bug was introduced in some later firefox version.
since you are now using oldstable, i'm not sure if it's possible to upgrade firefox/iceweasel to a version where this is fixed...
