Linux Printing PDFs

Overview

There are multiple ways to print and view PDF's in our Linux LTSP environment. The most common is to view a PDF from an internet source in Chrome or Firefox. While both of these are excellent PDF viewers they sometimes have problems printing. Two of the most common printing issues are a single blank page or short error message.

Another way to print

We are going to assume you are already viewing your PDF in Chrome. The process will be very similar if you are in Firefox.

While in Chrome, move the mouse to the upper right and the download widget will be displayed. Click the down arrow.
