[SOLVED]Cannot print to PDF files neither from Chromium nor from Firef

When I open the print dialog and select "Print to file" to print to a PDF file, it works from applications such as gedit, evince, LibreOffice (this one uses a different print dialog, but works anyway), etc. but it is not working when using it from Chromium or from Firefox. Printing to a standard printer from these browsers works.

When I launch chromium from the terminal and try printing to a PDF file, it outputs this error message in the console:

[2229:2229:0618/092520:ERROR:print_dialog_gtk.cc(406)] Printing failed: Operation not supported

When I repeat the process from Firefox, no error message is printed in the console.

Printing to files was working until recently, I suppose an update broke it. I have Arch installed in 3 different computers (one i686, one x64 and one arm7h), and it is broken in the 3 of them. I'm using XFCE4, and both ghostscript and a2ps are installed.

Is this a known bug? Can it be solved/workarounded?

I didn't believe it until I tried, but you're right! You have to change the default name in the printing dialog and then it works O_oU

Really weird bug. THANKS!
