Printing in Netscape & Mozilla


My printer is set-up in CUPS with the latest HP driver and work fine with numerous programs and test pages etc.

However in netscape there is only an option for postscript/default. Where is my HP printer and how do I print to it?

That should print it just fine. It will just print to your default printer (which you set up w/ CUPs). Have you tried pressing "Print" and seeing what happens?

whatever the command you use to print needs to be placed in the command box of the printer properties. go to file > print > choose properties, from there you'll see a print command box. put your print command in that box. for example, i set my printer up through cups w/ the kde printer manager, so the command i use is kprinter. hope that helps.
good luck.
