I had not tried printing from either Windows or Linux before, so
after reading the above I decided it was time for me to test that
I just tried printing a one-page document from the viewer on
WinXP SP2. First (to make sure I had the latest publicly-
available version of the viewer) I uninstalled the one that was
there and installed the viewer using the package available from
the odfviewer page.
When I open a document in the viewer, the progress bar at the
bottom never reaches the right-hand side, nor does it disappear
as is usual with other programs. However, the file appears to
fully load and display as it should.
Choosing File > Print did not bring up the Windows Print dialog
and nothing was printed. No change in the progress bar.
Another problem: I went into Print Preview and then could find no
way to get out of preview mode and back into normal view mode.
When I opened another document it was in normal view.
I then went to my Ubuntu machine and tried the same things, using
the same document. I got the same results as described above for
Windows, regarding the progress bar, printing, and print preview.
Printing works fine from OOo.
Later I will file or add to an issue, for the record.
