Hi folks

Scratching my head with a daft issue - running Omnis 6.1.3 under Linux (last desktop version which will do so) and I have an instance where one user is not able to print reports as pdf’s - they get saved as a zero length ‘.txt’ file instead - but other users on the same machine work fine saving pdf’s (using the Omnis python reportlab option as no Brainy component for this version on Linux)

Clearly I have done something (or more likely forgotten to do something) when copying the Omnis folder from user to user but cannot either remember what or work out what ! Does this ring any bells with anyone else who uses Linux Omnis ??
