Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-09-07 04:31:20 EDT
Nothing to do with cups; perhaps eggcups?
Comment 3 Mike 2004-09-07 08:57:17 EDT
With the eggcups clue in hand, I located your description of the
problem here:


Would it be correct to asssume that a fix is in progress along the
lines you suggested in this message or has this already been addressed
and we are looking at a different problem now?

Thanks, Mike Klinke
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2004-09-07 09:01:07 EDT
eggcups is an entirely different animal now.  If it's polling every
five seconds, that's probably not what we want..
Comment 5 Colin Walters 2004-09-07 10:43:45 EDT
This is probably eggcups polling (via libgnomecups) for new (and
removed) printers.  To fix this we'd need to emit a D-BUS signal when
the printer list changes instead of polling.  

Comment 6 Colin Walters 2004-09-13 16:12:45 EDT
This should be fixed with the latest libgnomecups and cups uploads
which should show up after FC2t2.
