Description of problem:
Whenever I upgrade to the latest beta release, /etc/cups/mimes.types is replaced
with a default. mime.convs is not changed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Modify /etc/cups/mime.types
2. Update with latest cds
Actual Results: mime.types is replaced with what appears to be a default version.
Expected Results: user changes should remain.
I uncomment the line
to allow printing from a windows client.
A similar line in mime.convs is not changes
application/octet-stream application/vnd.cups-raw 0
It is left uncommented.
This line is changed by redhat-config-printer. You need to specify that the
queue is a raw queue in the redhat-config-printer tool.
Thanks - I kept looking for the Raw Queue in the tab Queue Type. Then I found
that if selected the generic print driver instead of HP I could select Raw Print
Seems to me that the instructions for redhat-config-printer should be updated to
show how to do this. It didn't seem intuitive to me.
