CentOS release 6.8 (Final)
I’ve been able to print to this printer with no issues, until this evening. When I tried to send a print job the job just sat in the print queue. I killed the job and deleted the printer, then re-installed the printer using the Printer configuration tool found under System/Administration/Printing.
I’ve tried all manner of settings, both on the Libre Office document and in the Printer configuration tool. Now I can print to the printer but I
cannot get the printer to print in Landscape orientation. Only portrait orientation comes out no matter what settings I choose.
I’ve done a bit of Google work but I find nothing that appears applicable to my specific issue of not getting landscape prints no matter what setting I choose.
The HPLIP web site says the latest version of hplip for my machine, RHEL
6 because they apparently have not heard of CentOS, is hplip-3.16.9_rhel-6.0.x86_64. CentOS does not have this version available in the repo.
What’s a guy to do? Windows should be this hard to work with, but not Linux.
