Why cannot I print to my networked (wired) printer from a Firefox screen?


I am currently using Ubuntu Hardy Heron.

My problem is not being able to print, web pages, to my net-worked printer (hp 1022).

I can address the printer -192.168.0.10- and modify the control pages.
I can print to the printer from Open office.

The message I get when attempting to print suggests that the printer is not connected. This is clearly not so.

Can any one help?

Firefox needs the program to call for printing.
Presuming you have cups running, have you added the printer at http://localhost:631

I have looked for where I can inform Firefox as to the printer, but have not as yet found out where.

The printer is included in the CUPS list of printers.

I have just down loaded OPERA and it printed directly from the screen.


I would still like to use FIREFOX.

Sorry to be such an ignoramous - can you point me to the place in FIREFOX?

Thanks again Barzo.

File/Print or Edit/preferences get you to the adjustables

In File/Print, you should see your printer named (Mine says Epson stylus C70) If youy see 'Postscript Default, that's no good.
