When I try to print a pdf ( could be also other file format, but I didn't tested ) from okular
the orientation is always landscape. Obviously I cannot print this way and had to switch to document viewer or gimp... pretty boring.
Any idea how to fix the problem?
Thank you

Following link is marked as solved so I had to open a new one because solution didn't work for me an probably I' will have no answer to the topic marked SOLVED:
Anyway I do not mind if you want to merge the topic...
Sorry for troubles, bye

Portrait PDF's print OK for me in Okular, but landscape PDF's print across the middle of a portrait sheet. If this is the problem you have then

File > Print > Properties > Set Orientation to Portrait

should make it print correctly

Unfortunately is not a problem about setting the correct orientation...
I also tried to print landscape or portrait and the result is the same: portrait oriented...
