Printer Frustration, please help

  • I had a canon printer it's now been gone 6 months.
    I now have a HP wireless printer.
    Every program prints to it, on demand.

    Except Opera. I click Print, a little icon appears in my task bar. but nothing is in the queue, and nothing printes. The print requests just disappear.

    And so, when I want to print, I have to open a different browser to get what i want. A real Pain in the neck, and makes me wonder if I want to then return to the opera browser.

    Just to test, I downloaded 12.16, BANG! It printed beautifully.

    So whats with Opera 20, Opera Next, and Opera Developer that none of them print to my Wireless HP.

    they all see it (it is listed) and have it selected in the print setup window.

    they do no find it though, when you click the find printer button. Interestingly, neither does opera 12, But as I said Opera 12, still prints without any problem.

    There's something amiss in my setup of the later versions. Can you please help.

  • It's your default printer? If not, it's being selected correctly?

  • Yes it is the default printer. Its highlighted in the select printer window. So yes.
    The printer is wifi,

    The problem exists on both my desktops. the three are connected by wifi to router.

    All other programs including opera 12, have no problem.

    Thanks for input

  • I also have a wifi printer and every time i had problems printing with Opera was because the printer wasn't working well in a general way and not because of problems with Opera.

  • Thanks for experience. But as I said, every other program, browser, including opera 12 has no problem printing, it is only the new opera. (stable, Next and developer) that fail to print. So I have to believe the problem is in opera someplace, perhaps in the configuration/setting, I don't know but I'd like to be able to print.
