CentOS release 6.8 (Final)

I've been able to print to this printer with no issues, until this
evening. When I tried to send a print job the job just sat in the print
queue. I killed the job and deleted the printer, then re-installed the
printer using the Printer configuration tool found under
System/Administration/Printing.

I've tried all manner of settings, both on the Libre Office document and
in the Printer configuration tool. Now I can print to the printer but I
cannot get the printer to print in Landscape orientation. Only portrait
orientation comes out no matter what settings I choose.

I've done a bit of Google work but I find nothing that appears
applicable to my specific issue of not getting landscape prints no
matter what setting I choose.

The HPLIP web site says the latest version of hplip for my machine, RHEL
6 because they apparently have not heard of CentOS, is
hplip-3.16.9_rhel-6.0.x86_64. CentOS does not have this version
available in the repo.

What's a guy to do? Windows should be this hard to work with, but not
Linux.

"until this evening"...so that's interesting.

I'm also on CentOS 6.8 but 32-bit using the same hplip version. Normally
I do printer setup with hp-setup, then use the web interface to cups to
add it in to that environment.

Also, add hp-systray to your startup apps if you haven't already.

Does portrait work with ANY other type of document -- pdf, for example?

Very interesting. I have a 32 bit system on the network that can print
the same document from Libre Office in landscape with no problem what so
ever. My 64 bit machine does not want to hear it.

I'll try printing to pdf then print that. I'll let you know what happens.

A quick search reveals that you can get that RPM from hplipopensource.com:
