Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

evince used to print docs to my printer Epson RX640 fine, but recently every time i send a pdf to the printer, the printer thinks I'm trying to print a CD. I don't know what could have caused the change. I have checked print settings in evince - says it's printing an A4 sheet. Documents from openoffice on my PC print fine. pdf's print fine when sent from other computers. It just seems to be evince on my PC. Tried to reinstall evince but it wouldn't let me uninstall it as it was needed by other applications.

I'm using Evince 2.22.2 running under Ubuntu hardy Heron 8.04 on a lenovo laptop.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Is this reproducible with Lucid? Please test and provide us of feedback about it, Thanks in advance.

I don't have Lucid but may upgrade when the stable version is released.
Presumably if I install Lucid, I'll get a new version of Evince into the
bargain. I'm afraid that if it works I won't try to reproduce the bug for
fear of succeeding!
