Installed system printer not found in Ubuntu 21.04


Description of the issue:
Attempting to print on a Ubuntu 21.04 freshly installed system. Only printer available to brave is a ‘print to PDF’. The system has found and installed an HP M277 network printer.
Printing to PDF and then opening in a PDF viewer and printing to the printer works. Clicking the “manage” button opens the system print window, which shows the installed printer.

Expected result: Brave detects system configured printer

Brave Version( check About Brave): [Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit]
