    Hi,

    I've been using openproj for managing my personal research projects for 2 weeks, everything it's fine but only one matters concerns me: Print. My operating system is Ubuntu.

    When I try to print I see in the Print Dialog Box that the print state for all printers is: "Printer is not accepting job" and I can't print anything. There is a large message in my console (if anyone I might sent it) The problem is that all printers are actives, I don't know if the problem es with java o what.

    Thanks a lot!

    Carlos A.

     
    • Carlos:

      ln -s /usr/lib/libcups.so.2 /usr/lib/libcups.so -- apparently OpenProj looks for the latter, which is not available in Debian 4.0 and Ubuntu.

      HTH,
      Jose

      Hi Jose

      Thank you. I wrote that command but now I can't open the printer dialog box. There is a message box with "Print service not found"

    Just bad luck. And bad software.

    ProjectLibre allows printing.  It is a major improvement over OpenProj
