Printing Open Office problems

I was trying to print a text document from open office this morning and it wouldn't print. The print box would come up - i press print and then a small box quickly poped up and before i could read it the little box closed then there was nothing, no print status box or anything...

I tried reconnecting the printer. I tried coping the text into Text Edit but it wouldn't paste into to textedit.

So then I tried printing another document (a text edit doc) and now the HP Printer Jobs box shows up showing all my previous attempts to print in a que and it says jobs stopped do you want to start jobs. I click yes and all the jobs start printing...

So I was able to print my document, but any ideas as to why it didn't print in the first place? I've never had problems before printing docs from open office...

if it helps I was using an HP 1012...

There should be a real solution, but I don't know it, so I'll offer some hacky, kludgy suggestions...

If you think it might be useful to read that message, you might try importing video into iMovie in the background or something, to make the small popup box stay up long enough for you to read it.

I recommend using NeoOffice/J, the Java-hosted version of OpenOffice - printing seems better supported with it.
