Description of problem:
The default names for the printer queues are different between
system-config-printer and hal_lpadmin. This causes two printer queues
to come up when configuring a printer via Kudzu on boot and when it is
detected by HAL. system-config-printer should move to using hal's
format because it is more descriptive. Hal's format is as follows:
<printer model>-<usb port number>
The model is converted to lowercase and whitespace is converted to dashes.
If it makes it easier the usb port number can be changed to the usb
device number. I like port number better because if you plug the
printer into the same port each time you will get the same number.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a printer with kudzu on boot
Actual Results: you will see two configured printers queues.
Expected Results: One printer queue.
We don't know the port number at the time the name is generated. You
can specify the name yourself though, using --Xadd-local --name ...
