Suddenly Fuzzy Text - Duplex printing - Libreoffice Writer - Brother MFC-J6535DW

Post by conradpc » Thu Jun 28, 2018 10:26 pm

Suddenly my Brother MFC-J6535DW is printing fuzzy text (see attached) from Libreoffice Writer (Version: 6.0.5.2 Build ID: 1:6.0.5~rc2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~lo1)

It prints text just fine from XED (v1.6.3). It prints PDF documents just fine or photos just fine. It will also print both test pages from the printer control panel
(system-config-printer (CUPS tool v 1.5.7).

Stumped, any help would be appreciated!

from IRC chat: suggested corrupt font cache might be the problem...or reinstall libreoffice...
to rebuild font cache -> run this "sudo fc-cache -fv"
thanks to cryptodan and djph --
but neither solved the problem --- narrowed down to fuzzy only if duplex print is done (which was working normally for some time prior to this issue)
