Description Cedric Verkleeren 2007-06-15 05:51:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20061011 Fedora/1.5.0.7-7.fc6 Firefox/1.5.0.7

Description of problem:
When I set a default printer using gnome-default-printer, the printer seems to be set as default but when lauching gnome-default-printer again, the default printer is not selected. I get this behaviour when I am logged on as simple user not as root.
Using strace, I see we store informations in ~/.cups/lpoptions when I am logged on as simple user. And the informations are stored in /etc/cups/lpotions when I am logged on as root.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
desktop-printing-0.19-21

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1.log on as simple user
2.launch gnome-default-printer
3.select a printer to set as default
4.launch gnome-default-printer again

Actual Results:
the default printer hasn't changed

Expected Results:
the default printer selected must be the one I have previously selected

The default printer has actually changed for that user, it's just that the
application does not display that correctly and shows the system default instead
of the user default.

I think it also needs a 'Use System Default' button.

The system-config-printer implementation provides this button now.
