I have installed on my system Ubuntu 16.04 the following version of LibreOffice snap: libreoffice / 21 / canonical

The problem is that when I want to print a document, only a "Generic Printer" is listed. No one of the printers of my system is listed. So, I can't actually print anything. How can I setup the snap version of LibreOffice, so that it can "see" my printers?

Thank you

with enough karma, bottom right of answers one has a control to convert answers to comments. And comments have a link to convert to answer. Great stuff here :)
