Has anyone had any problems with printing? Chromium from the snap won’t let me select the right printer. Firefox (no snap) works fine.
Details: I’ve like five or six printers in my system (because autodiscovery is a thing and coworkers’ laptops tend to advertise their home printers for some reason), but most of them are stopped to avoid being a distraction. There are two printers that are relevant to me:
- the office printer
- my home printer
I was trying to print a PDF from Google Drive at work today, and Chromium gave me only one option: my home printer (plus save to disk/google drive, but let’s ignore those). Actually, it’s even more interesting: Ctrl+Shift+P gave me the GTK print dialog with only that option, but a regular Ctrl+P gave me this native-looking Chromium dropdown that showed my office printer as an option but wouldn’t let me select it, automatically switching back to the home printer.
In case it matters, the home printer was selected as default in the system printers dialog. But nothing changed after I set the work printer as default and reloaded the Chromium tab.
