Subject: prints garbage to postscript printer (Brother HL 2700 CN)
Date: Tue, 6 Jun 2006 08:09:36 -0700 (PDT)
Package: tuxpaint
Version: 1:0.9.15b-3
Severity: important

When printing some tuxpaint sample drawings to a
postscript printer (Brother  HL 2700 CN) I get garbage
and blank pages (US letter size).


The first sample line drawings of the hen and plane
print legibly but are shifted down to the bottom of
the page.

The underwater corral picture prints garbage.

Could this be a paper size issue?
If so how do you set the default paper size for
tuxpaint? I tried tuxpaint-config but didn't see a
paper size setting.


This printer works fine with other programs like
openoffice.org, gimp, etc.

As indicated in the description of the Print Commands in
tuxpaint-config, the default printing command in tuxpaint is "lpr". 
Please test printing one of your images (which you can find in
~/tuxpaint/saved/) using "lpr".  If you can't, then lpr is misconfigured
on your system.  Fix the configuration problem  to make tuxpaint's print
work.

Subject: Postscript printing rewritten in 0.9.17

Since Postscript printing was rewritten in 0.9.17 and there have been
no further reports of corruption since then, I'm considering this issue
closed.
