Installed elementary os 5.1 and i find that all network printers connected to other computers (solus) are seen in elementary but disabled. strange thing is that they work for a while then they stop receiving print jobs from elementary. but they keep working with the print jobs of the other pc on network.. I tried to enable firewall and open cups, avahi and hplip port but nothing changes. I wonder also what the big button on the left on the printer configuratio page stands for. Nothing semms to happen id I switch it on (default is off). can anyone write a decent tutorial on how the printer connfiguration works on elementary and how to access properly network printers (that the system see but disabled)? thanks
