Error printing one particular pdf
This morning I tried to print the blank periodic table from
I downloaded it first so that I could print it in landscape mode.

Here is what I found:
  • Okular 1.5.1 only printed a blank page, whether I selected landscape or portrait option.
  • Likewise for Libreoffice Draw, which is the application that started when I opened the pdf using Libreoffice.

Through trial and error, I discovered that I could print the pdf only by opening it with Firefox ESR, which identifies as Firefox Quantum 60.2.0esr (64-bit). However, Firefox ESR only printed a scaled-down version in portrait mode. It did NOT let me select landscape mode before printing.

My OS/hardware:

RE: Error printing one particular pdf
Sounds like either a printer driver issue or a pdf data protection issue.
Do you have other issues with printing stuff via this printer? Or only on that particular pdf?
