Default Opera and Konqueror won't print, but FF works fine

I noticed that Opera no longer prints:

Something is sent to the printer, it spools over and spits out a ... blank
page!

Konqueror won't even go as far as that. It only shows:

I [13/Sep/2010:22:04:57 +0100] [Job ???] Request file type is application/pdf.

However, Firefox prints perfectly every time!

Any idea how I should go about fixing this?

# emerge -1pDv hplip cups

Hello Mick,

I got a new hp printer and had to use the latest testing versions
of cups and hplip to get it working correctly:

net-print/cups-1.4.4 (X acl dbus gnutls java jpeg ldap pam perl php png python
slp ssl threads tiff usb)
net-print/hplip-3.10.6(X hpcups libnotify qt4 scanner snmp)

Sometimes also you have to delete a setup and set the printer
up from scratch.

However, I think your problems are related to the fact it's a pdf........
being printed from a browser? PDF files are all that is broken with
Opera

Unfortunately, when I have printer problems, I just have to keep hacking
at it. Solutions never seem methodical for me. I also keep backups of
old config files in /etc/cups directory, to sometimes manually hack at the
relevant config files.....


hth,
James

Thanks James,

I have not ticked the box that says "print to file" in Opera.

In Konqueror the Output file is greyed out.

Therefore assume that both applications should be sending the data to the
printer ...

The error file for Konqueror mentions pdf, but the Opera and Firefox show
postcript:

I [27/Jun/2010:11:29:28 +0100] [Job ???] Request file type is
application/postscript.

Do I now need more than the hplip driver perhaps?

BTW, a second box (x86) can print from Opera, but the page has areas which are
blacked out. Konq prints but always in colour even when I select greyscale
and Firefox works fine.

This all must have started a month ago or so.

In case of priting with KDE applications you may be hit by this bug:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=309901

To make the the solution i applied at my installation short:

copy
/usr/portage/net-print/cups/files/pdftops-1.20.gentoo

to
/usr/libexec/cups/filter/pdftops

After that restart cupsd.

According to the bug report this seems to work is the package "poppler" is
also installed - which the case at my installation.

Hope that helps.

regards
Petric

Thanks Petric,

I will try upgrading to testing version and if that does not fix it, I will
apply your suggestion.

I upgraded to cups-1.4.4-r2 and KDE now prints fine. Opera still fails with a
blank sheet coming out of the printer on the amd64 box.

Anyone else having this problem?
