This is a new install, updated, Fedora-26 using XFCE, however I believe
the problem began with Fedora-24.
I print several puzzles every day usin Firefox, puzzles presented in pdf
print without any trouble, however those that require Flash stop working
when the Fedora print window pops up, it looks normal but does not
display/recognize my printer, the printer name is missing/blank. I am
forced to use SeaMonkey to print the flash sites such as:
Using Firefox the line that says "Print to Printer:" simply shows "No
Printer." SeaMonkey shows the printer and prints. It seems Firefox
should do the same and it used to ... I've googled this extensively but
never come near finding an answer. I would prefer not having to use a
second browser to print puzzles.
Can anyone offer an explanation, better yet a fix?

I mean only this two virtual network adapters can be seen by
neither the player,
the workstation nor
the virtual network editor front end start ...
it is complete unuseable ...

Being a long time Vmware user, a shirt time kvm user.. I still dont
understand why vmware is a must in your situation.
tried VMware Wkst. 12.5.6, also 12.5.7 ... no change ...
even the hack to get the additional virtual network interfaces, nothing
maybe the next release of VMware Wkst. 12.5.8 will run ...
as VMware Wkst. is essential for me, there is no way having Linux
instead of Windows;
the decision to try it with Fedora is the feature of inplace upgrade and
keep it up-to-date ...
I'll keep my old windows running as log as the hardware is working ...
I have managed to hose something in my account.
In Fedora 24 about 2/3 of the time when I login the only item in
Computer was "File System" and inserted media (CD/USB) neither mounts or
appears. The other 1/3 of the time it worked. Not good. But the clock
is ticking on F24 now so I updated to Fedora 25 and it got worse. I get
entries for every mount point, tmp, sys, everything plus I get desktop
icons for them all too. This is on Mate if you are wondering why I have
icons on the desktop. But at least it is now consistent, it happens
Made a fresh account and logged into it and everything works normally.
Tried a couple of times and it appears reliable. So whatever is wrong
it is just in my account but I can't figure out what got corrupted.
Google is little help, all the automagic plumbing has been rewritten so
many times most hits are to pages discussing obviously wrong things.
While logged out I have tried removing .gvfs, anything suspicious in
~/.config ~/.local, like gvfs-metadata, systemd/user, .ccache, .dbus,
Even looked in /var/tmp for leftover cruft. So what file does control
the current automagic stuff?
Upside is I have finally seen accelerated 3d/video decode in a VM without
a Kaboom so as usual, upgrading brings new shiny.
