Yes, remember that OOo is not a KDE/Qt app. Sometimes printing is not 
configured properly for GTK+ apps. (I think OOo uses GTK+ ?)

Example: I had to add my printer name so that Acrobat would print at 
all, which became "/dev/name -Pxyz" in the print dialog box. Where xyz 
is the CUPS printer name. Fortunately that setting is remembered.

So try printing with some other GTK+/Gnome apps. That may configure 
things for OOo to use as well. Just a guess, but worth a try.
