printing from mozilla


I have a cannon bjc 8200 on a suse 8.1 running kde 3.0, using Mozilla to browse the web, thats mozilla 1.0.1. When I want to print a web page the printer gets some kind of command because it starts spitting out blank pages, infact it does not stop untill I turn of the printer. Mozilla is configured to use the default print comands.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Can you print okay from other applications or is this just a Mozilla issue?

Well if you are having problems printing from other applications as well as Mozilla I would say that you probably have a problem with your printer configuration. What are you using to printer system are you using?

You must be using CUPS as it is default for SuSE Linux 8.x

You shuld be OK in printing on KDE because they use kprinter as default.

Try this:
On your Mozilla open:
File -> Print -> Properties ...
Change
Print Command to: kprinter


That's it ;-)


Have a lot of fun :-)
