Anyone else seen this please?
It seems like TP is at least partly responsible for this issue in that Thunderbird printing works fine without it.
one reason for the missing text in prints may be that no black ink is applied (ink cartridge empty, nozzles clogged, etc). Please print a nozzle test page to see if all ink nozzles work. Note that there must be two different sections with black ink.
Depending on the selected print mode, either the pigmented black or the photo black ink is used. Try switching the paper type from standard copy paper to special ink jet paper in the print dialog - standard mode uses the pigmented black ink, inkjet paper mode addresses the photo black ink. The CUPS driver might have used the alternate black ink cartridge.
If this does not solve (or explain) your printing problem, please post a photo or scan of your prints to illustrate what you mean with "odd images".

I have just tested this on a laptop using openSUSE LEAP 15 (fully updated) and the problem does not happen in any web server or Thunderbird. So it is related to openSUSE Tumbleweed which is of course very leading edge.
I received your log file - an error is reported by the postscript interpreter Ghostscript.
This is a known problem - on some Linux distributions, the preinstalled version of Ghostscript is complaining about print jobs:
The solution is to use the version of Ghostscript that is included with TurboPrint:**** This file had errors that were repaired or ignored.
**** Please notify the author of the software that produced this
**** file that it does not conform to Adobe's published PDF
1) when installing TurboPrint, make sure that GPL Ghostscript is also installed
- select "Use GPL Ghostscript with extensions for TurboPrint"
- on the page "Optional GPL Software" select "GPL Ghostscript"
2) in TurboPrint Control, please also check in the dialog "Preferences":
- "Use GPL Ghostscript with extensions for TurboPrint" must be selected
By the way this has only started happening recently but not sure when as I dont normally print from the web or email often.
The regular version is usually located in /usr/bin/gs, the TurboPrint version is /usr/bin/gszedo
Ghostscript 9.25 which is preinstalled on Tumbleweed doesn't accept PDF print jobs that were printed correctly in previous versions. That's why we use the older version 9.05.
File permissions should be
Code: Select all
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root ... /usr/bin/gszedo
PS. Just checked my laptop with Tumbleweed and it has the same issue and the same files in /usr/bin. Will check my other laptop which has leap 15 installed and see what happens.
