           Summary: kde fails to print in landscape format
           Product: kdeprint
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: FreeBSD Ports
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-print-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: bugzilla soulrebel in-berlin de

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    FreeBSD Ports
OS:                FreeBSD

to make a short, the problem is exactly like in this ages old report: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45218

when printing something through kprint that is in landscape format the right third or quarter of the page is cut off. it looks like "the contents was turned to landscape before the underlying page was". 

i can reproduce this problem on freebsd6-stable with kde3.5.5, on another different freebsd6-stable with kde3.5.4 and on a kubuntu machine with whatever is the current version of kde on edgy eft.

this is definetly kde-related and not driver related, if i open the pdf files in kghostview i actually see a portrait page with turned (and cut off) content. (it looks ok in kpdf)

if i print through cups by commandline the printed pages are ok, if i print with kdeprint their cut off.

i have small example pdf files and i could make some screenshots, but i have no place to upload them right now...

thank you very much!
