1.5.5 / OpenSUSE - Scribus Printing Solid Sheets of Colour only
« on: September 08, 2020, 12:52:04 pm »
Hi All

I have used Scribus 1.4.x for a long time. Last version was 1.4.x
Recently upgraded to 1.5.5.  This might be the first time I have printed in this version?

When I print out a single page test of a document (contain a single image & text) in colour:
-  I get a solid sheet of uninterrupted colour in the printable area, e.g. all black on one page.

Yet printing works fine with another program (e.g. Firefox).

Setup:  OpenSUSE LEAP 15.2
Firefox tells me that I am using CUPS & Gutenprint as the printing system/driver.
Printer is a HP Colour Laserjet CP3525DN.

Have looked at the Printer Options.  It's much more extensive than before!
- Have set the Colour option to RGB (the same as the Firefox setup).
All options currently used are in the PDF attachment.  I can't make head or tail of many of them...

Very confused here as I have not see this problem before.

Can anyone please advise?

Many thanks,
Andrew

Rule 1 when it comes to printing from Scribus: Don't do it.

Create a PDF and print from the PDF viewer.

Hi Nermander

Thanks for the reply.

Yes.  I could print from a PDF.

Yet I have always printed from Scribus before using the older version with no difficulties.
Just seems weird (or a setting issue).

Thanks again,
Andrew

Under Linux the problem is that there is not one way of printing, and it is hard to make software compatible with all possible printing methods.
