I can't print from Java applications on my Linux system. This is with CUPS 1.2.8 and a Sun Java 6 JVM on Ubuntu Feisty. I have tried all the on-line tips and work arounds that I can find from CUPS itself to bug reports in Launchpad, but I still can't get it to work.

This is worse than back in the days of Java 1.4 where it didn't work out of the box on my Mandrake system, but if you followed the help documents on Sun's website you could finally get it working.

So my wish list is for seamless out of the box printing with Java.
