Description Joe Harrington 2003-12-05 14:21:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Gecko/20031114 Galeon/1.3.10

Description of problem:
1. Should be able to remove a printer with just the name (not the
device, make, model).

2. Should be able to set location/description, all printing options,
sharing, etc.  There's lots the command line can't do.  This is
important for setting up printers on a network, if you don't want to
spend hours manually GUIing your all your printers after each
reinstall of the OS.

3. A list of printer makes and models would be good to have somewhere
in the docs or as a command-line option to list.  Since punctuation
matters and the underscore in the settings file becomes a space in the
command line (or vice-versa), it was hard to find the right name to
type even after poking around in the foomatic database.

Steps to Reproduce:
NA - this is a feature request...

This is all printconf-tui stuff.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-11 13:37:00 EDT
Fedora Core 1 is 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.


NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.

TUI version no longer exists in FC6, and is replaced by the ability to remotely
configure over IPP.
