Description Yue Shi Lai 2004-09-07 13:02:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; X11; Linux i686) Opera 
7.54  [en]

Description of problem:
Exactly the same issue as Bug 124217 in Fedora Core.

In

/usr/share/printconf/util/cups_import.py
/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_conf.py
/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py

it should read

f = os.popen ('LANG=C /usr/sbin/alternatives --display print')

instead of

f = os.popen ('/usr/sbin/alternatives --display print')

as e.g. for German locale, the produced message is

"Link verweist auf..."

rather than

"Link currently points on..."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups-1.1.17-13.3.12

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Issue /etc/init.d/cups restart

or

1. Start redhat-config-printer  

Actual Results:  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py", line 
243, in get_active_spooler    return which
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'which' referenced before 
assignment

(Because which never was assigned, as no "Link currently points on" 
string match occured.)

Expected Results:  No error message should occur.
