Re: printer prints 4 in a page, from browser only

Hi all,

My browsers insists on printing 4 pages on one physical page and nowhere I can find the option to set this back to normal: 1 page per physical page.

All other printing (from PDF etc) print normal.

Does anyone have any idea how I can reset this behaviour to normal?

The CUPS option that does this is called 'number-up'.  Perhaps the
lpoptions command will show whether you have this set somewhere.


The output from the command lpoptions is:
[root athene ~]# lpoptions
job-sheets=none,none printer-info='HP Laserjet 1200' printer-is-accepting-jobs=1 printer-is-shared=1 printer-make-and-model='HP LaserJet 1200 Foomatic/pxlmono ( recommended)' printer-state=3 printer-state-change-time=1147969389 printer-state -reasons=none printer-type=143364 scp-fc5=true

So, no number-up. Makes sense, because regular printing is ok (all non-browsing applications). However, I may have found the cause.

After issuing the above command I started Konquerer, it also printed 4-up, so I had a look at the properties and this time I could see the parameter: 4 pages per physical page (a KDE dialog).

Switching this backup to 1 page, corrected the situation for Konquerer *and* Thunderbird.

Remarkable is that a KDE dialog influences Thunderbird running from gnome.
