Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133411
ggv defaults to /usr/bin/lpr for printing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:04 EST
Description of problem:
GGV default to piping print jobs to '/usr/bin/lpr'. Most other
applications normally print to 'lpr' and let the $PATH variable locate
the proper binary. I would consider the latter the proper behavior.
This is useful as I need to override cups with lprng in /usr/local/bin.

Patch to correct the ggv schema for finding lpr in the path
Patch by Gary Gatling so that ggv uses the 'lpr' command in the path rather

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
This particular change has the potential to break existing deployments of Red
Hat Enterprise Linux.
