Printing with LPR in Firefox

Categories: [ IT ]

Firefox didn't allow me to print by default. Printing to a file was the only proposed option. The culprit here is not even Firefox but GTK, which needs to be told that there is life beyond printing to a file. I put to my $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 file the following line: gtk-print-backends="pdf,cups,lpr,file", and I could finally print to lpr.
