Bug Description

When I try, say 30 copies, it spits out 29 blank ones and prints just 1. I'm certain that it used to work. I have re-installed Inkscape (yesterday with latest version) but the problem persists. Always spits out one less of blank pages followed by one actual print. Doesn't matter the number I put in or the printer preferences. Using a Canon Maxify MB5060.

I do not have this problem with any other software on the computer (Windows 7)

Thanks
Jonathan

Confirmed on Windows 10 x64 with stable Inkscape 0.92.2 as well as current nightly build Inkscape 0.92+devel (666b9584b2, 2017-11-17).

Definitely an issue in Inkscape as proven by a warning on the command line:
  WARNING **: Failed to set CairoRenderContext

@Alvin: Yes, seems to be the same issue.

Interestingly this one is specific to the Cairo renderer which was introduced in Inkscape 0.91, so it seems we were doing something similarly wrong before as the other bug has reports for both versions <0.91 and >=0.91.

Seems to work but could use some testing...
