Opera 9.64 not seeing local network printer


Hullo All,
This is probably a simple problem, but thus far it has eluded me.
I am running Opera 9.64 on Fedora 11 x86_64.
Opera doesn't seem to see the local network printer. When I print from Opera nothing happens.
If I choose File>Print the print window opens and under the destination tab we have; Destination: Kyocera-FS-1200, Host: unknown host, Comment: CUPS.
If I go to System>Administration>Printing the 'Printer Configuration-localhost' opens and if I then double click on the Kyocera icon it tells me; Desc: Kyocera FS-1200, Location: Local network, Device URI: socket://192.168.0.10.
I have looked at Opera's preferences but there isn't anything to set there for a printer. Firefox picks up the printer OK as does all other apps that I use (e.g OpenOffice).
Where and what do I have to edit/fiddle with to make Opera see the printer?

Thanks In advance,

Cheers,
Terry

Hullo All,
I can now report a solution to the problem, which I found here <https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu/serverguide/C/cups.html>.
For Fedora 11 I had to edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf (Fedora doesn't have an /etc/cups/cups.d/ports.conf) and add the line...
Listen 192.168.10.250:631 # Listen on the LAN interface, Port 631 (IPP)

Once CUPS was restarted Opera printed OK even though it still reported the printer as 'unknown location'.

Hope this is helpful to anyone else who has a similar problem.

Cheers,
Terry
