When trying to print in ISE 8.1i (Linux), I get an error message: "print fails because the default printer has not been selected".
The default printer has to be set by using PRINTER environment variable. In a xterm, "setenv PRINTER yourdefaultprinter" can be used. Once PRINTER is set, ISE is able to print any file.
You may try the follwoing:
From shell before starting ISE:
(substitute appropriate queue name)
Put in /home/user/.profile or /etc/environment to make permanent (will not take effect until you start a new shell or restart system, respectively).
