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 or call the SCS Help Desk (x8-4231) if you have questions or problems.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
