1. Start LibreOffice Writer
2. Add new printer in Cups
3. Open the print dialog
You can see the newly added printer
Printer is not there. You need to colse Writer and open it again for it to notice the printer.
P.S. OpenOffice didn't have this problem, I could even start/stop cups and Writer would update printing dialog correspondingly.
