Local Printing from a linux desktop

I was trying to print an invoice through local printing from a linux desktop (SAP GUI(6.3 version for Java)

I get the message that the output was successfully issued; but did not get the printout

I changed the print parameters on the front end; checked the output of the spool which shows the error that there is an error in the ABAP processing

Would really appreciate clarity on the SAP printing options available for SAPGUI for Java from a linux desktop

Hello Yash,

please have a look at note 821519 or here:

Depending on your kernel version, you might be able to make use of the new printing model.

For now you should use SAP GUI for Java 6.40 rev 2, which has some default printing functionality. 6.40 rev 4 (few weeks away) will come with the complete implementation including various options.

Best regards
