Print in Firefox 3

firefoxAfter upgrading to Firefox 3 on my OpenBSD 4.4-beta box, I noticed that I could not print anymore. I'm using the stock lpd(8) to print. When I brought up the print dialog box, it only showed "Print to File" option.

After quite a bit of googling, I found my solution.

A post to Mozilla's bug tracker explained that this is a problem with GTK, not Firefox. To restore the ability to print, I had to create a new ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file and add this line:

gtk-print-backends = "file,lpr,cups"

Now I can print again. Yay!
