base_report to printer configuration process

on 3/28/15, 1:26 PM 1,034 views

i would like to print direct to printed instead of download pdf

i have installed base_report_to_printer and configure the user printing access 

i have followed bellow procedure...

After installing enable the "Printing / Print Operator" option under access rights to give users the ability to view the print menu.

To show all available printers for your server, use the Settings/Configuration/Printing/Update Printers from CUPS wizard.

Then go to the user profile and set the users printing action and default printer.

but i didn't get the solution please give some suggestions to print direct printers...

Report behaviour is defined by settings. Settings can be configured:

* globaly
* per user
* per report
* per user and report

When system select action and printer, in first step retrieve user default values. In next step system verify printer settings in report definition. When system select an action and printer, in first step retrieve user default values. In next step system checks printing settings in report definition.

In report definition (Settings > Prinitng > Reports) you may set "Specific actions per user"

* Send to Printer
* Send to Client
* Use user's defaults

If you select the last, user defaults are used.

Hello, I did what you suggest but instead of having a pdf that I normally have. I have this : "%PDF-1.4 1 0 obj /Title () /Creator() /Producer( wkhtmltopdf) CreationDate (D:20151123183013Z) endobj 3 0 obj /Type /ExtGState /SA true"......... What am I missing ?! Thanks
