No print service found on Linux

If I try to print anything (source, graph ...) i get "No print service found" popup.

I am running IDEA 8.0.1 on Ubuntu 8.10. Is this a bug or is there something I need to set to make printing possible in Idea ?

Cheers,
Dragisa

Hello.

Printing works for me in Ubuntu. Please, check is it possible to print from different application, e.g. from the Ubuntu text editor.

Yes, printing works. Infact, I was able to save Spring graph as image and print it with another app.
I am wondering if the problem is related to this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+bug/156191
Unfortunately, the suggested workaround (changing page orientation from automatic to something else) does not work for me.

What versions of Ubuntu/JDK do you have ? I am running on Ubuntu 8.10 and Sun JDK 1.6.0_10. I have 3 remote printers and they all work fine from linux - use them regulary.

My configuration is Ubuntu 8.04, JDK 1.6.0_10. Cups packages have different versions, e.g. cupsys-common is 1.3.7. I cannot clearly understand from https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+bug/156191, which package exactly should have version greater than 1.2.

For me printing from IDEA works without hints, with default settings.

In addition to my previous post: my printer is Windows network printer.

Ok, this is old.

I accidentaly found answer to not being able to print from IDEA.
You have to check "Allow printing from the Internet" in Ubuntu's Printing -> Server -> Settings
I guess java makes a network call to Cups to find available printers.
