I am using Xubuntu 18.04. The printer is Epson L3050 with proprietary drivers.

About a month ago Chrome stopped printing properly. If I try to print a Web page it throws a lot of pages with huge text. The text and images are grey.

For example, if I print google.com page, I get 3 pages. The first one looks like this:

The rest are almost empty.

Print preview looks normal:

All other programs print normally including Firefox.

This happens on different computers with different profiles.

Starting Chrome with an empty profile doesn't change anything.

Printing to a file creates a good pdf that can be printed using Xubuntu default pdf viewer without any issues.

What could be the problem?

  • Chrome or Chromium? – User24601 Jun 20 at 15:57
  • It is Chrome as you can see ;-) – Pilot6 Jun 20 at 15:57
