Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 115701
text file printed through class is not converted properly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:36 EST
I have a class definition in /etc/cups/classes.conf created using the
Web interface at http://localhost:631/. It looks like this:
JobSheets none none
The printer lj1100-final is using the ljet4 driver and has the
"convert text to PostScript" option enabled. If I print a text file
with "lpr -Plj1100-final", it comes out just fine -- the correct
margins are set, etc. If, however, I print a text file with "lpr
-Pfinal", the correct margins are not set and the text is therefore
cut off at the top and the left. It appears that somehow the driver
options set for the lj1100-final printer are ignored when printing
through the class.
I'm using cups-1.1.20-2 and foomatic-3.0.0-22.

There seem to be two problems here:
1) as reported here, the driver settings are ignored when printed through the class
2) as reported on bug 150391, ascii submitted to lpr is printed without any
margins and gets cut off. I can confirm this.
I don't see these as duplicate bugs.
Confirmed. I had thought that both involved classes, but (2) does not.
Note to self: Need to re-test this in FC6 with CUPS 1.2 and network default
options instead of lpoptions.
Perhaps this bug should have its version changed to devel given how long its
Fixed in FC6 with network default options.
