Printing 4+ landscape oriented pages on a single page

Bug #51354 reported by Marcus Trautwig
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
kdebase (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdeprint

Kprinter offers printing multiple pages on a single sheet of paper via the "Multiple Pages per Sheet Filter". When printing 4 or more pages with landscape orientation, e.g. from a presentation, the order on the printed sheet is a little weird:
| 3 | 1 |
| 4 | 2 |
While this would be OK for portrait oriented sheets, with landscape one would rather expect this layout:
| 1 | 2 |
| 3 | 4 |

The filter used internally by kprinter (psnup) supports different layouts for landscape printing, but they do not yet show up in the "Multiple Pages per Sheet Filter" options dialog.

This adds the missing Page Orientation and Column Layout options to the "Multiple Pages per Sheet Filter" by patching
the file /usr/share/apps/kprinter/filters/psnup.xml.
