Thunar print multiple PDF, custom action (SOLVED)

Postby Tuna130 » 08 Jun 2017 16:49

I thought this would be an easy new custom action to Thunar, printing multiple PDF files. But I cannot find the right command...
This would seem a common issue for office work, so please let me know your solution.

Tried 'evince', which works fine, but I don't want to open file by file for printing. Is there a command line print option?

I also tried 'lpr', after starting lpd daemon with

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/./lpd start
File is added to queue, but does not print...

PS: For LibreOffice documents the 'print-without-open' custom action command is:

Code: Select all

libreoffice --headless -p %F
