Since I am under Ubuntu 12.04 I can't print all my page with LibreOffice Writer. The last lines are not printed. If i print the same document as a *.pdf document I can print all the page.

Does this happen if you print from other applications under Ubuntu, too?

This happen only with Writer of LibreOffice, only with UBUNTU 12.04 OS and only for the 4 or 5 last lines of the text eventhe text as more than one page.

Hi @PHH,

Have you checked your page layout settings to make sure that the entire document is inside the printable area for your printer? The PDF generation step might not be clipping the document in the same way as the physical printer.

If you have another printer handy, you could try printing to that machine to see if you experience this problem with all printers, or just your Canon IP4300


Based on your updated information, it sounds like you'll probably want to file a bug about this problem. The QA team will be happy to help you track down this issue!

Salut! When I print the same text with LibreOffice and the same printer CANON IP4300 under Wiondows Vista, the printed text is OK. When I print a multiple pages text, Only the 5 or 6 latest lines of the last page are not printed!

Salut! Under Windows Vista LibreOffice Writer print all the page with the same printer. Under Ubuntu 12.04 LibreOffice Writer :

  • If I print a multiple pages text, the last lines of the last page are not printed.
  • If I print a one page text the last lines are not printed. That is independant of the number of lines od the last page.
