Gwenview and print assistent


(Frank) #1

You probably know gwenview’s print assistant, which allows you to easily print multiple photos.
Now for some time I have the problem that I can not print from the assistant.
cups only reports:
“/ car / spool / cups / 02205-001, object 69 0 at offset 102251997: operation for number attempted on object of type string: returning 0”

A print as a pdf file revealed to me that the assistant, contrary to the settings, always creates a file in letter format (I need A4), which probably leads to the offset message from cups.

Further tests showed that the QT print dialog shows the same behavior when printing several images per page.

Only I do not know how I can change this behavior. Maybe someone here knows me advice.

What’s the output of locale? Does it work if you start Gwenview with LC_NUMERIC=C gwenview? I’d guess that it’s related to this bug, and should be resolved in Qt 5.12.1.

Hi totte
Thank you for your fast answer.

Yes, it’s working with “LC_NUMERIC=C gwenview”, and will be a workaround till QT 5.12.1.

to be complete it:

$ locale
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_TIME=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_COLLATE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_MESSAGES="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_NAME=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_ADDRESS=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_TELEPHONE=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_ALL=
