If you encounter the Typecheck Offending Command Setlinecap error, it means that there is a printing problem in your PDFs from Chrome. While it is convenient to print our PDF files straight from our Chrome browser, this type of error may appear.
Google confirmed that there has been issues with their new Chrome version especially when it comes to PDF files. However, Google released an update that will solve this error and create a smoother printing process. Still, there are also some ways on how you can fix the error.
How to Solve a Typecheck Offending Command Setlinecap Error?
Method 1 – Use Incognito Window
Incognito Window is a private browsing feature of a browser, which enable privacy in your web searches. While using incognito window, websites that you visited and data files are not stored in the windows.
Using incognito window when opening and signing in to a website will give it a fresh process hence minimizing errors. All major browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Safari or Brave have this feature easily accessible.
Method 2 – Send your File to a PDF Reader
Sending your PDF file outside of Google Chrome can help avoid the error. You can install PDF Readers like the Adobe Acrobat Reader that will open your PDF file for you instead of opening it via Chrome. From the PDF Reader, you can send it to your printer without hassle.
Method 3 – Clearing your Cache
Keep in mind that clearing your cache will also delete the settings you have saved on some of the websites. You may want to check these sites first before choosing to clear all of your cache.
- Open Google Chrome.
- Click the three dots on the top right or the More button.
- Select More tools.
- Choose Clear browsing data.
- Adjust the time range or you can choose All time if you want to clear all your data.

Method 4 – Change Your Printer Settings
Postscript driver is often in the printer setting hence triggering the error. What you can do is to change it to PCL driver. On your Printing Preferences, go to the Advanced section of your Printer’s Settings. Disable PostScript pass-through and save the changes.
