I talked my mother into getting a Chromebook to replace her old Windows 7 laptop and I’m trying to set it up for her. Had a hard time getting it to work with her printer which is too old to work off the network. I got it working by telling Chrome OS it was an HP and then trying similar sounding printer drivers until one worked so we can now print from Chrome.
Collabora will be her main app for word processing but it seems to have its own printer dialogue which doesn’t see the printer I set up. The only options in the printer dialogue are print to PDF and search for printers. Print to PDF works as expected but search just hangs.
Do I have to do something with Collabora to tell it what printers are installed?
