Description of problem:
When changing the default printer through redhat-config-printer (-gui or -tui),
the default printer in GNOME Print Manager does not change.  This leads to
erratic printer selection in various applications.  Restarting CUPS service does
not help.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open GNOME Print Manager, note default printer
2.  Close GPM, change default printer via redhat-config-printer (-gui or -tui)
3.  Close redhat-config-printer, saving if applicable
4.  Re-open GPM, and note default printer

Actual Results:  Default printer in GNOME Print Manager remained the same

Expected Results:  GNOME Print Manager should reflect the changed default
printer that was selected in redhat-config-printer

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-08-11 16:14:00 UTC
redhat-config-printer changes the *system* default printer, i.e. the default
which is used in absence of the *user* default printer -- which is what
gnome-print-manager adjusts.

Same as with 'lpoptions -d ...'.
