      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.5.0_06"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_06-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_06-b05, mixed mode)


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Linux macdonaldjlinux 2.6.11.4-20a-smp #1 SMP Wed Mar 23 21:52:37 UTC 2005 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux



      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      None -- printer required to test, though

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Under the "Appearance" tab in the print dialog shown by PrinterJob.getPrinterJob().printDialog(), there is a "Job Attributes" section. Here, there is a "Banner Page" checkbox.

      Selecting this checkbox does not cause a banner page to be printed on a Linux 64-bit machine.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Run the attached program on a 64-bit linux machine. Click on the "Appearance" tab. Select the "Banner page" checkbox. Print, and note that no banner is printed.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Expected to get a banner page.
      ACTUAL -
      No banner page.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
