jetdirect printers are HP printers with network connections. With Redhat 7,
I was able to print on this printers. But now with printconf, I got these
messages in the status.lp (in /var/spool/lpq/lp):

LP filter msg - 'Make_passthrough: pid 3351, execve
'/usr/lib/rhs/printconf/jetdirectprint' failed - 'No such file or

It makes sense because this file doesn't exist...

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a jetdirect printer with printconf gui
2. Try to print on it
3. Contemplate the result: nothing...

We (Red Hat) should really try hard to fix this before next release.

Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-06 16:34:40 UTC
Yeah, um, I left out smbprint, jetdirectprint, and ncpprint helper scripts.
Oops. Fixed.
