View Full Version : [ubuntu] Printers gone from most applications

January 2nd, 2009, 10:59 AM
I have two printers connected to a server. I have found that I can no longer print from most client applications. I can access cups on the server and print a test page. I can access the printers on the client through System / Administration / Printing and print out a test page.

The printers no longer appear in the list of printers in applications like Firefox, Document Viewer and Gimp . The printers are listed but as local printers which clearly they are not. Open Office has no problem in printing but does not list the correct printers.

Any idea of what went wrong or how to fix it?
