Description Douglas 2021-09-15 19:50:54 UTC
Description of problem:
GNOME Web installed doesn't succeed in printing to PDF. No error is shown, but the expected PDF file is never created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
40.2 (flatpak) and 40.3 (rpm)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any web page with GNOME Web
2. Print the current page (the system print dialog is shown)
3. Set a destination directory and filename for the PDF.
4. Press the blue "print" button at the headerbar

After following these steps I was expecting the PDF file to be placed at the chosen location, but it was not there or anywhere else in my home directory.

If you print to PDF from Firefox (with its own dialog or with the system dialog), for example, it creates the file as expected.

Epiphany installed as an RPM is also affected. This is not a flatpak problem. Sorry.

Hi, this is an upstream bug: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202363

It's been on my to-do list for a while, just never quite reaches the top....
