Subject Fwd: odt2braille on the Mac
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 14:26:50 GMT
Hi all,

My name is Bert Frees. I'm the developer of odt2braille, the Braille 
plugin for OOo: Some time 
ago I raised an issue on the old developer list (see e-mail below), but 
I got no reaction. I'm bringing it up again on this list in the hope 
somebody here can help me out. I'm not a Mac expert at all, but I get a 
lot of requests for Mac support. A lot of people would be very happy if 
this got solved.

Thanks in advance,
Bert Frees

puzzling on a bug for some time now and I'm really stuck. I hope there 
is somebody on this list who is familiar with OOo on the Mac, and who 
knows what might be the problem.

I'm using javax.print.PrintServiceLookup 

to look up the default printer device. It works fine on Windows, but on 
Mac OS it causes OOo to crash. Also, I'm sure the problem is OOo-related 
because the code runs fine when it is not embedded in an OOo extension.

This is the code:

javax.print.PrintService[] printers =
