    Hi

    If u wanna print with Opera and wonder why u cant print there is a solution i found.

    Open terminal and write

    cd /usr/lib
    sudo ln -s libcups.so.2 libcups.so

    Thats it!After Opera Restart u should be able to print to all your installed printers.

    Re: HOWTO:Get Opera to work with CUPS

    Hi!

    This is my first post and new in linux.

    I've been installed Xubuntu feisty, and i've been looking for a virtual printer, i made the installation of cups-pdf, but not works with opera, with Firefox and others programs works fine.

    I try your solution with cups, but not works either.

    Makes a file with the name _stdin_.pdf with 0 bytes in /home/username/PDF, and that's all.

    Somebody could make work cups-pdf with opera?

    I'm desperated, because i only use Opera...

    Sorry my poor english, but this is a very good way to practice it.

    I'm experiencing this too, the only working solution at the moment is adding manual printer on Opera,

    File-->Print, on tab "Printer Program", fill "Printer Program" with "lpr" and "Printer Parameter" with "-PVirtual_Printer" where "Virtual_Printer" is assumed to be your cups-pdf pseudo printer name.

    I think we should fill a bug report to opera about this.
