This appears to be slightly different. This prints the "page view" -
i.e. if I view two pages side-by-side then it will print two pages
side-by-side and by default in portrait. How is this different? I don't
know that it really is just that it's not "print two pages per sheet"
in the usual sense. (Using OOo 1.1.3 with KDE integration).

I've been using KDE for 3/4 years and use various versions on different
computers running from 3.1 to CVS head. I've never had a problem
printing multiple pages properly on any system where I can print
properly. i.e. if I can print 1 page to a sheet then I can print
multiple pages to a sheet. Just click on "Properties" and one of the
options is "Pages per Sheet". The reason I make this point is that your
reply could be read as casting a dispersion over KDE's ability to print
multiple pages per sheet where as I have always found it to work
perfectly "out of the box". It may be that there are problems with
Mandrakes installation of KDE but as I do not use Mandrake I cannot
speak authoritivily here.
Also, although your idea is easier than using KDE's dialog/print
subsystem if you are doing it once, it's not if you are doing it many
times. Just set up the printer and it's done for good. Click on "Print"
and your friendly KDE print dialog that you have come to know pops up.
It has the advantage of looking the same across OOo applications and
all KDE applications.
