Printing from Firefox Flatpak


I have the flatpak for Firefox installed and I get the printer dialog which pops up to select my printer. But when I click okay and try to print it just puts the rendered file in /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/cache/tmp/gtkprint{random} and doesn’t actually print it. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem, I was thinking it was a portal issue but that seems to be fine as the gtk pritner selection screen comes up and I can see my printers.

I would like to be able to print directly from my flatpak installed firefox instead of having to take two to three steps to get a print job.

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot or fix this would be great. I’m pretty new to flatpaks.



Do you have xdg-desktop-portal and GTK or KDE implementation installed? I believe it’s portals job to make the printing happen.
