Printdialog does not work under Linux [message #453808] Sun, 10 April 2005 11:54 Go to next message

Hi,
I am trying to display a printdialog under Linux with SWT (source followed) but failed.
The codes are from a book named "SWT Developer Notebook".
The program works well under Linux, except PrintDialog class.
I thought this might be the code's bug. But I tried the same code under Windows 2000 professional, the
PrintDialog showed perfectly.

I tried to run eclipse under Linux, the "Print" icon is disabled.

I am not sure whether it's a bug in SWT or the setting of my Linux is wrong.
Can anybody help me?

My platform is:

Debian Linux (unstable).
Sun JDK 1.4
eclipse-platform-SDK-3.1M6-linux-gtk.tar.gz
Gtk+ 2.6.4 (By apt-get)


===========================================================

public void widgetSelected(SelectionEvent e)
{
PrintDialog printDialog = new PrintDialog(ImpactMenu.parent, SWT.NONE);
printDialog.setText("Print");
PrinterData printerData = printDialog.open( );

System.out.println("printerData: "+printerData);

if(!(printerData==null))
{
Printer p = new Printer(printerData);
p.startJob("PrintJob");
p.startPage( );
Rectangle trim = p.computeTrim(0, 0, 0, 0);
Point dpi = p.getDPI( );
int leftMargin = dpi.x + trim.x;
int topMargin = dpi.y / 2 + trim.y;
GC gc = new GC(p);
Font font = gc.getFont( );
String printText= "Printing Test";
Point extent = gc.stringExtent(printText);
gc.drawString(printText, leftMargin, topMargin +
font.getFontData( )[0].getHeight( ));
p.endPage( );
gc.dispose( );
p.endJob( );
p.dispose( );
}
}

See

SWT is not supporting printing on Linux GTK and Motif.
