This problem is reported in Debian bug #266542
It is related to the ongoing bug where spaces between words are lost (see Xprint
bug #1112, https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1112).
With the work-arounds discussed in #1112 (namely, not touching the firefox font
configuration), the Debian page (and others!) prints "correctly" - at least,
spaces between words appear.
But the problem I am report here relates to the headers and footers:
- when I print the first time, headers and footers appear OK: the font is
"serif", spacing is fine, numbers appear (e.g. "1 of 2" in the footer), the date
is in the lower-right corner
- but when I print a second time, all of a sudden the headers and footers are
screwed: font becomes "sans-serif", spaces are lost, numbers disappear (" of "
only), no date in lower-right corner.
This is using Xprint 1.0alpha1 (debian 0.1.0.alpha1-4), firefox 1.0 (1.0+dfsg.1-1).
Closing WONTFIX because nobody cares about Xprint. Reopen if you plan to address this bug.
