screenshot of gedit print dialog window
My printer is Brother MFC-685CW and I use the Brother Linux drivers for a long time. In other apps, Seamonkey suite, okular, gwenview, flpsed... printing works. The print dialog window for gedit shows no printer, no print to file, no printer options, see attached. I don't see anything in the Preferences, don't know how this came about. Thanks.
Plase could You provide output of such commands:
[rolf@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/release
ROSA Desktop Fresh R2 release 2012.1 for x86_64
[rolf@localhost ~]$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 3.13.11-nrjQL-desktop-0rosa #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Apr 24 20:32:04 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[rolf@localhost ~]$ lpq
MFC685CW is ready
Please could You do the such steps:
1. Open konsole from user
2. Start gedit from konsole
3. Press Cttrl-P or Print button
4. Close gedit
5. Give me output from konsole
As you say. Once gedit opened, I pressed the print icon, which opened the dialog without printer(s). I closed the dialog, then gedit. konsole output follows:
[rolf@localhost ~]$ gedit

The problem is actual for ROSA 2012.1 Fresh R3.
I have also tested Fedora 20: gedit see the installed printer.
$ cat /etc/release
ROSA release 2012.0 (LTS) for x86_64
I made a new installation from ROSA.MARATHON.X1.EE.x86_64.iso, re-using /home and various other data partitions. Now, gedit-2.30.4-2.1-rosa.lts2012.0.x86_64 shows a proper print dialog and prints from my printer.
Case is actual for Fresh R5 and RED X2
