Author Topic: Printing problem with Adobe Reader 9  (Read 1276 times)

For an improvement on XPDF's rather clunky nature, and difficulty in printing, I installed Adobe Reader 9 (v 9.3.4), and it's displaying .pdf files fine.

However, when I try to print, at first it seems to be sending the file to the printer in the normal way, but then I get a strange error message:

The following error occurred while printing...
'usr/bin/lpr: line 1: firstname: command not found
usr/bin/lpr: line 2: [item in mysql database]: command not found
usr/bin/lpr: line 3: firstname: command not found
usr/bin/lpr: line 4: [item in mysql database]: command not found
usr/bin/lpr: line 5: firstname: command not found
usr/bin/lpr: line 6: [item in mysql database]: command not found'

This seems very bizarre to me, because the word 'firstname' is a field title from one of my mysql databases, and the items (my [] brackets) are items of data from the same database. 

I can print normally and without problem from OpenOffice Writer, or AbiWord, for example.  The problem occurs with Adobe Reader 9.

[Edit to add]: If I just type lpr at the command prompt, I get the same output.
