mousepad print and thunar print file
« on: April 11, 2008, 07:55:12 pm »

I have discoverd that when I click print in mousepad or click print file in thunar that nothing happens.

I have a printer connected via cups which prints fine for medit and abiword..

I notice that if I switch printer settings on the xfce menu from cups to bsd-lpd that a print dialog for xfprint appears for mousepad and print file..but the dropdown for printers is empty and does not print.

with cups no job is listed for mousepad print so it is not being sent

I found a mousepadrc file for user but do not know if an addition can be made to set mousepad to lp0

groups lists lp and medit and abi print

I found several files related to xfprint but nothing is sticking out

I see nothing in cups to add programs

another poster also has this issue

I am sure this is solveable

Question: how do I add mousepad and print file to cups or get mousepad to print via cups

Thanks for any
