Description David Kaplan 2004-12-14 22:38:22 UTC
Description of problem:
Create some printers using the cups web based administration tool. 
Then run system-config-printer.  It will convert some or all of the
printers to raw queues and break the old configuration without any
warning.  system-config-printer should at the very least warn before
doing this.  Better yet would be to make the two systems compatible so
it doesn't matter how you create printers - command line, web base,
system-config-printer tui or gui.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-printer-0.6.116-1

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2004-12-15 13:22:39 UTC
Fixed in CVS.  It will no longer attempt to import CUPS queues.
