Description Ron Sokoloski 2004-02-26 03:00:04 EST
Description of problem:

I have a Canon s450 printer that I want to use on both my FC1
workstation and some Windows machines via SAMBA. I've tried the RedHat
Printtool (which would allow the printing of test pages, but nothing
from any application on the linux machine), the CUPS configurator
(http://localhost:631), a RAW queue and manually edited the mime.types
file (for the Unsupported format 'application/octet-stream'! error
fix) all to no avail. The HP LaserJet 4L on the parallel port runs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1 - fully updated, no non FC1 pacjages or RPMs

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Canon S450 printer via printtool. Print a test page. Seems fine.
2.try to print from The GIMP - nothing happens, no error dialogs, no
3.Try to print from a Windows machine - nothing happens, no error
dialogs, no printing
Actual results:
Canon USB printer can only print test pages from printtool

Expected results:
Printer available to all applications, and shared via SAMBA

This might be it:

W [24/Feb/2004:02:08:39 -0500] [Job 6] Media tray empty!

This erronious message comes from the kernel I think.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
