I'm running F18 on three machines; I have no problems specifying landscape
vs portrait. I just tried printing from gedit, google-chrome, and gthumb.
In each case I changed the specification from Portrait to Landscape, and
the item was printed in Landscape.

Also, in the last week, I've used enscript from the command-line, and have
printed in both landscape and portrait.

Rather that look at this at the OS release level, I would troubleshoot
this by looking at your printer(s) setup(s); are you specifying the
correct printer (or one very close to the one) that fails to print in
Landscape when specified?

My printer is an HP 3010 sitting on the LAN. I set it up using the XFce
GUI: Applications Menu-> Administration -> Printer Settings.

A few earlier releases ago, I used to have guts and set my printers up
from the command-line, vi'ing the configuration files, and then restarting
the cups service. I guess that I've gotten lazy.
