    Running V17.3 Mint Mate, the printer driver(s) that were installed offer more tweaks that I would ever need EXCEPT three things;

    1. The page selection is ignored. If I only want to print 2 pages of a 20 page web page, I get ALL 20 no matter what I try, which is a HUGE problem!

    2. The ink level and cleaning options are not available.

    I looked for other drivers, but I can't get them to load. Is there some other way to update the printer other than the lackluster printer tool? (Yes, I know that series is old).

    Over 150 views and no input? :rolleyes:

    1. Apparently this is some issue between Opera Classic V12.18 (that never had this problem in Windows) and the printer driver (wherever that came from) that was installed automatically.
    This isn't a problem printing directly from a doc or a pdf file as far as I know.

    Any workaround?
