Description Matthias Clasen 2009-08-18 13:58:16 UTC
I unplugged a printer and saw no visual indication in s-c-printer that anything had changed. It would be good to indicate printer status in the icons. That would also increase consistency with the GTK+ print dialog, where we already use emblems to indicate printer status.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2009-08-19 16:32:52 UTC
There are two separate states here: 'accepting' and 'enabled'.  They're like gates at the start and end of the queue: jobs can only join the queue if the printer is 'accepting' jobs.  Jobs only get processed (and so leave the queue) if the printer is 'enabled'.

When a printer is unplugged, the queue is disabled (but its accepting state is left alone).

For 'accepting', we can put a 'paused' emblem on the icon like the GTK+ print dialog does.

For 'enabled', the GTK+ print dialog doesn't currently show these any differently.  What's the best approach for that?

Should a 'paused' icon be shown if the queue is either 'not accepting' or 'not enabled'?

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2009-08-19 18:47:10 UTC
Marek, what emblems are we showing in the print dialog, and for what queue states ?

Comment 3 Marek Kašík 2009-08-20 12:56:04 UTC

Gtk+ print dialog shows paused emblem for disabled printer. Printer which rejects jobs is insensitive.

Other emblems are:
report  - not used now
warning - when there is a printer-state-reason with '-warning' suffix
error   - when there is no suffix or '-error' suffix



Comment 4 Marek Kašík 2009-08-20 12:57:31 UTC
ps: error and warning emblems have higher priority than pause emblem in gtk+ print dialog

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2009-08-20 16:43:17 UTC
OK, updated upstream.
