Default Printing fails in Open Office only after upgrade to OO 2.4

I've got some documents that we use around the house, like a grocery
shopping list, which we've used for a long time. Since upgrading a
couple of days ago, one upgrade was OO 2.4, printing fails in Open
Office Writer. Printing in other applications seems to work fine.

I do see some messages in the cups error.log file:

E [09/Sep/2008:13:51:01 -0700] Unsupported character set "iso-8859-1"!
E [09/Sep/2008:13:51:04 -0700] Unsupported character set "iso-8859-1"!
E [09/Sep/2008:13:51:11 -0700] Unsupported character set "iso-8859-1"!
E [09/Sep/2008:13:51:30 -0700] Unsupported character set "iso-8859-1"!
E [09/Sep/2008:13:52:43 -0700] Unsupported character set "iso-8859-1"!


If this is the problem how do I get this supported again?

Thanks,
Mark

OK, I seem to have solved this problem using the method outlined in
this thread - basically comment out the 8859-1 line, rerun locale-gen
and restart cupsd. However I haven't a clue as to why it worked, why
the problem appeared now of all times, and I don't think these folks
did either.

Anyway, it's printing so IU submit this simply to help eliminate
firther traffic.

Cheers,
Mark
