Description Dan Mosedale 2005-02-15 22:56:41 UTC
Description of problem: Setting up a new Laserjet 1300 defaults to having "GhostScript pre-filtering" in the Driver Options panel in printconf set to "No pre-filtering." This means that applications which send a PostScript level which is too high for the printer lose. It would be a fine thing if the printer could be queried for its postscript support level at config (or even run-time), and the pre-filtering set appropriately. FWIW, Gecko-based web-browsers have this problem. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): hal-cups-utils-0.5.2-8 cups-1.1.22-0.rc1.8.5 cups-libs-1.1.22-0.rc1.8.5 system-config-printer-0.6.116.1.1-1 system-config-printer-gui-0.6.116.1.1-1 desktop-printing-0.17-3

It's a problem for Gecko-based browsers since we started using Xft for Postscript printing, which was after the Firefox 1.0 / Mozilla 1.7 branchpoint: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=190031

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!

Fedora Core 3 is not maintained anymore. Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the current Fedora release please reopen this bug and assign it to the corresponding Fedora version.
