Cups generates wrong printcap file from printers.conf
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
CUPS incorrectly generates /etc/printcap (printcap) file from /etc/cups/printers.conf
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
printers.conf file contains a printer defined this way :
I mean, that on the arkas server lj5c printer should be used. BUT after restarting cupsd,
which generates the printcap file, this is the result in the printcap file :
where nil... = localhost. Both the server and printer are incorrect. It simply can't print
and consequently lpq command generates "Error: loop in printcap".
When I repaired the printcap file, everything worked OK. Unfortunately I can't work
without cups, because some applications (OpenOffice) reads the list of printers from
the cupsd daemon.
Steps to Reproduce:
What does '/usr/sbin/alternatives --display print' say?
