I have added a network printer with cups, I can send a test print page through the cups web interface. However the printer won't show up in the default printer menus (i.e. when you press through Firefox -> Print) it just won't show up.

Is there anything specific thing you need to do to make the printer show up in the normal print menu for other applications?

  • Obvious question, but you did try restarting Firefox, right? Install gtklp if you don't have it installed already, and see if the printer shows up there. – Faheem Mitha Feb 15 '16 at 13:19
