Linux: Zoom level random Printing to CUPS-PDF

Post by rsb » Tue Oct 23, 2018 3:42 pm


Using the wxPrinter class on Linux and printing to CUPS-PDF, the Evince Document viewer comes up with
a random zoom level and a random rotation. Zoom level is sometimes 100%, sometimes Fit Page Width, sometimes Best Fit.
Rotation is sometimes 0 and sometimes 90 degrees.

Our print orientation is set to Landscape and print paper size is set to Letter 8 1/2 x 11.

Is there any way to control the zoom level and rotation from wxWidgets?

No problems on Windows.

Thanks very much.

Platform: Linux
OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.9 (Santiago)
wxWidgets: 3.0.2
