I hope someone can shed so light on the following:
I upgraded to SuSE10.3 -32bit recently and everything seemed to go well. Maple 11.01 was installed and has worked fine until now. Today was the first time I tried to print a file and 'Lo and Behold. There is no print function at all! Whenever 'Print' or 'Page Setup' is clicked there is a brief moment of 'wait' cursor and then nothing happens. No dialog box, no warnings just silence.
I did a search for similar issues on Google but came up empty. I've checked the CUPS config file for the Linux fix regarding Sockets, that made no difference, I checked the installation of CUPS and it seems fine, indeed, every other application prints fine. By the end of the day I resorted to reinstalling Maple and that didn't make any difference either. I'm at a loss. Anyone using SuSE and Maple 11.01 care to comment?
This system prints via network to a Phaser 8500 printer, CUPS is at version 1.3.x.x, the ppd files are correct. I read there were some Java printing problems earlier in the year but I understand those bug fixes have been applied to the JVMs. This system currently runs Java 1.6.
Btw, I managed to get my file to print. I loaded it in my laptop running SuSE 10.2 and Maple 10 and the file printed straight away.
PS. I also set the libxcb evironment variable fix with no results.
