OpenOffice 2.02. lpr Printing Bug

SCS Computing Facilities has recently been made aware of an lpr printing bug in OpenOffice 2.0.2 on Fedora Core 5 machines. Print jobs sent to printers listed as "(via lpr)" in the Open Office pull-down menu will go to the wrong printer. All printers should be listed twice in the pull-down menu, please select only the printers that are listed as "Ready" and NOT printers listed as "(via lpr)" in the menu.

Please contact help@cs.cmu.edu or call the SCS Help Desk (x8-4231) if you have questions or problems.

Thank you for your attention,
