(Part - I was telecast on 24 Dec 2015)
In my efforts to push FOSS in schools and colleges, I am distributing
free and open source softwares in schools and colleges. All projects are
uploaded on source forge.
However I am facing some printing problem executing JAVA code on
bosslinux. I usually print output directly on A4 paper and suppress
print dialog. I wrote the program before I knew BOSS and was working
nicely on windows. On BOSS, the program executes properly but the
default output comes on letter size instead of A4. This trims some left,
right, top and bottom content.
I tried various code snippets to pro grammatically set the paper A4 but
it does not work. I am using cups-pdf and the pdf print is also having
the same problem. I thought first that it was a problem specific to boss
but a friend of mine sent me this.
[Forwarded from Sanjay Patil]
The crucial information is the geographical location,
i.e. the second part of a locale name, for example:
en_GB is English for Great Britain => A4 paper
en_US is English for United States => Letter paper
I think that without an existing geographical location
(in particular for "C" or "POSIX") it is just not possible
to set another paper size than what is the default in the PPD.
Or the fallback should be at least "A4" (if avialable in the PPD)
because I think that A4 paper is more often used in the whole world
Has anybody come across this. Will you please run the following java
code on any other linux version and let me know how it works or send me
the pdf output ? I have already set the default data so just run the
Java file and press the [Print Attendance] button. You will get 23 page
document. Only one page will do for testing. pdf output will be best.
Thanks and regards
