inkscape won't print

My OS is Linux, and I use Inkscape for vector graphics , but it won't print on my Hp deskjet 1050 printer J410h. I am also unsure as to how to use the Scan function, all instructions assume that one is using windows or apple

    I've used that printer with inkscape and Ubuntu with no problems. when you say doesn't print is that what you mean or the output not what you expected? If your drawing extends beyond the boundaries set in document preference it won't print like you'd think. To have it print what you want you may have to export it to tiff or jpg or modify document size .

    Do you want to scan straight into inkscape or scan in general?

  3. Thanx Stillblue for your attention, won't print means that the job is still 'pending' after two weeks. I'll try your suggestion of exporting as a jpeg, and see if that makes adifference. Scanning - no idea how to scan at all, any tips welcome.

  4. Please consolidate the two threads into one, it's rather annoying to go back and forth. I'll go to the other now.
