LibreOffice doesn't show network printer with cups 2.2.4

Today I noticed that LibreOffice (fresh or still doesn't seem to matter) didn't show my network printer in it's printing dialog anymore. Only a "Generic Printer" was available.
Downgrading cups and libcups from v. 2.2.4-1 to v. 2.2.3-1 solved the problem for me.

Does anybody else experience the same? Is this a known bug (I couldn't find anything related on Arch Linux' bug tracker)?

Make sure you install the package gtk3-print-backends.  It is now required for printing in gtk programs.

Re: LibreOffice doesn't show network printer with cups 2.2.4

Same problem here.
gtk3-print-backends is already installed and I could see my printer in firefox but not in libreoffice or okular (which does not need gtk3-print-backend to my knowledge).
Downgrading cups and libcups solved the problem. So I think this is an issue related to cups.
What is strange is that, despite my printer was configured in localhost:631, it did not appear in libreoffice and okular before I downgrade cups (only generic printer).

I have reported a bug (FS#54695): https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/54695

Hello,
Same problem here but installing a2ps package (+ deleting and re-adding printer in CUPS + restart) has fixed the problem on my system.
Edit: on another system, this "solution" doesn't work sad

Re: LibreOffice doesn't show network printer with cups 2.2.4

Having network printer missing from print in any application wanting it, with 2.2.4-2.  In localhost:631, it is listed the printer is up, but not listed in applications, so it can't be used.  On multiple machines.  Only thing shown is print to file.


I may have to CONSOLE you about your usage of ridiculously easy graphical interfaces...
Look ma, no mouse.
