Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123074
Gimp always prints to the default printer
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
The default print string in gimp's print dialog is outdated. I have
two printers one a default laser printer and the other a color inkjet.
The setup string for the inkjet is as follows:
lp -s -depson -oraw
It appears that the '-d' flag is no longer supported in cups and is
ignored. As a result the output will be directed to the default
printer with disasterous results since the default laser printer
doesn't understand the inkjet print language and print gibberish.
The form I used which worked was
lp -s -P epson -oraw
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a computer with two printers
2. Invoke gimp for the first time
3. Try and print to the non-default printer
printing on default printer
printing on the printer I actually selected
I just tried it and both lp -d <printername> as well as selecting
another (non default) printer from the gimp print dialog worked for me.
