Operating system is linux Mint 17 LTS. Printer is HP OfficeJet Pro 8600

Libre Office working fine until upgrading to through update manager. Now clicking print brings up a corrupted looking print dialog box and freezes L.O. until I do a "force quit" I tried complete uninstall and reinstall with same issue. I also did a complete uninstall and downloaded .deb from L.O. website and installed with same issue. Strangely, I can print a spreadsheet with borders or empty, but as soon as I enter anything into a cell, it freezes.

When I installed Open Office (which I had to do to get my work done) printing works fine in O.O.

Same in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I reported this bug against the LO package team. Meanwhile, it is confirmed by others. I, for myself completely uninstalled LO and installed 4.3 stand-alone from from the LO Debian package. All well.
