I have installed on my system Ubuntu 16.04 the following version of LibreOffice snap: libreoffice / 21 / canonical

The problem is that when I want to print a document, only a "Generic Printer" is listed. No one of the printers of my system is listed. So, I can't actually print anything. How can I setup the snap version of LibreOffice, so that it can "see" my printers?

Thank you

  • Assuming your printer works for other apps, and assuming libreoffice from the repos also works, file a bug report against the snap. – Panther Sep 23 '17 at 14:53

  • Thank you. I have posted the question because I thought that maybe it was possible to resolve the issue with a specific setting. Moreover, I thought that other people had already found the same problem. IT seems that I'm the first to try to print :-) – Vosaxalo Sep 24 '17 at 15:52

Use snap connect libreoffice:cups-control :cups-control to get printers working in LibreOffice.

Please also say that you're affected by the bug I've linked (by clicking the button at the top of that page) and like this post on the forum so that people don't have to run this command in the future.
