I'm using 11.04 Ubuntu. I un-instaled 3.34, and installed LO 3.5.1, and now I can't print using the rear tray of my printer. (Canon MG6130) i go to "print", select property for my printer, and choose "rear tray", click OK, and PRINT... and it still print from the reg feed tray. any ideas on how to fix this?

This could very well be another sideeffect of:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/925836 https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46904

fixed by David Tardon on master, in LibreOffice 3.5.3 and backported to libreoffice-3.5.1-1ubuntu5 on Ubuntu Precise.

I had the same problem and it seems that the only way libreoffice respects the printer tray option is to go to Format - Page and change the paper tray from there. If the page settings are "from printer settings", the default tray is chosen irrespective of the printer tray chosen in the print dialog.

This is a bug and should be fixed but the above is a workaround.
