Humm, defaultprinter is 1 in my file:
Comment=Epson Stylus NX515
SubstFont_Times New Roman=Times
This file is owned by me, so it should be modifiable by that printer manager utility. And as can be seen, it s/b in landscape mode right now. The file I was trying to print is actually from another machine via an NFS share, is opened in read-only mode by LOwriter and apparently is not even rotatable in the print preview. And LO just popped up an upgrade to 3.5.3 advisory, so another window of FF is grabbing 160 megs of that. I'll test it after that has been installed.
I got up this morning determined to make it work again, but also knew I had to replace at least 1 of my 5 sata data cables, that hot red colored cable is a time bomb, and I now have 7 bad ones hanging on a drawer knob behind me.
I am a C.E.T., long since retired from the CE chair at a local tv station, 77 now, but that particular color of plastic has been turning copper into dust you can pour out of the end of the cover for over 40 years now, so its very well known to me that any cable using that color of plastic has a maximum flexible life of 2 or 3 years, and just laying there, maybe 5. And that is about the age these are.
I had also tried to run usbview, but it hung instantly and was not killable. So I dug out the MB manual to make sure I was grabbing the right cable (the machine itself is under an adjacent desk here in the coyote.den's midden heap), the reboot hung so I leaned on the power switch for 5 seconds. Crawling into that hole with a flashlight and fresh mustard yellow sata cable, I replaced that and made note that it seriously needs a trip to the driveway in front of the garage, and a liberal application of an air hose available here. Anyway, on rebooting the printer fired up, complained it was low on cyan ink, and printed the test page I'd sent it earlier. But last nights amanda report printout is still on the missing list. That serves two purposes here, one, verify's the backup went ok, and 2, gives the printers nozzles a daily one page exercise. Its very rare when I have to clean nozzles and waste $5 worth of ink doing it.
So, at this point I haven't tried to do another landscape print. I managed to get a good enough listing of a hal file from linuxcnc so I could see where I'd made a configuration error while adding a closed loop spindle speed control to the baby lathe I am now driving with a computer. CNC in other words. So the last thing I did with it last night was to carve a 1/4" 28 tpi thread on a piece of cold roll steel without laying a hand on a hand wheel. Not actually usable, 2 mistakes, and I know exactly what they are, so the next attempt should be good.
Stuff like this tries to keep me out of the bars.
