I am unable to print from OOo 1.9.125, and wasn't able to from 1.9.122( or 1.1.5), either. The error is "Could not Start printer. Please check your printer configuration."

All other programs don't have any trouble printing, and restarting the printer (or computer with the printer plugged in) doesn't fix the error. Why does printing not work?

Is 1.9.122 = 1.1.5???
I don't think so.

Linux or Windows?

I would ask myself what does 1.9.122 do for me that 1.1.4 would not. Then I'd install 1.1.4 and try again. People should have the latest version for a reason other than it is there. I am not being facetious; I have 1.1.4 installed and have no reason as yet to change for my own purposes ...and it is stable.

Which version of Windows? If the printer works with other programs there is no need to look beyond that by unplugging etc., since the driver is clearly installed. You are given a drop-down list of available printers, and if Win XP have the printer setup in the control panel. You could check to see if it is your default printer, although that should also show with other programs. It would be the default item in the window, and the printer icon in the control panel would be ticked. You might go there to check the entire default setup though.

OOo 1.1.4 doesn't work, either.

I have Windows XP. Even the "Print Test Page" works.

I have 1.1.4 and XP with no problem. All I can think of is first uninstall then reinstall. Otherwise, all other thing being equal, I'm stumped.
