I don’t use Linux, but the way things are going with Apple, I may consider it.

I've been printing almost exclusively to PDF for the last several years, but this morning I wanted to print to actual paper, and found that LC doesn't print from Ubuntu.

There's nothing in the result after the print command, so LC thinks it's doing fine.

And I can print from any other app on the same machine, just not LC.

This report for Linux Mint seems perhaps relevant:

But it's from nearly three years ago - has printing been completely broken in the LC Linux engine for years and so few noticed?

Any of you able to print from LC in Linux?
