Unable to print in Qcad. (Solved).

I am unable to print a drawing in Qcad.
I am using Qcad version 3.16.4
Linux Mint 17.3 KDE operating system.

I have read several threads about this problem, so far have not found a solution that solves my problem.
Must be something very simple.
Assistance would be much appreciated.

Please read through this thread about printing first:
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=3317

If you cannot solve your problem, please:
- attach original drawing files (DXF, DWG, ...)
- include screenshots if appropriate
- if there is an error message, indicate the exact message or include a screenshot of the message

Also please be much more specific. What exactly happens if you attempt to print? Nothing? Does the print dialog show up? Is an empty paper produced? ...?

Ok Andrew, I have read through the thread on printing and checked every point.
When I go to print this drawing (see attachment), the paper goes through the printer and all I get is a straight line across the paper.
Screenshots attached.

Please advise what further information I should provide.

Thanks,

Jim.

As you can see in your last screenshot, the paper (white) is nowhere to be seen. It's actually somewhere in the lower left corner:

Thanks Andrew. I got it to work. The two (apparently) conflicting scale entries is what was putting me off.
All good now.

I'll mark this thread as solved now.
