Description Peter Hunter 2004-09-25 07:22:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/125.5 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/125.9

Description of problem:
The TUI for this program doesn't know about ipp. Also, having set a printer (HP2300) up using the TUI, the A4 test page was not central at all on an a4 page - shifted up and to the left. But just loading the printer in the GUI and changing something minor fixed this alignment problem completely.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run program
2. try to add an IPP printer

For set-ups without X installed at all you are probably better off
using the CUPS web interface instead of system-config-printer, to be

I'm aware that the printconf-tui program needs a lot of care, which
hasn't been forthcoming due to time constraints.
Comment 2 Peter Hunter 2004-09-27 04:23:34 EDT
OK, I can understand people's time constraints. On the other hand, using CUPS web 
interface is not a workable solution - that's what I did but then the foomatic update reset 
my printers.conf and cupsd.conf without even leaving me a backup!
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-09-27 05:14:07 EDT
If you edit files that system-config-printer touches, and you are not
using system-config-printer, it is safest to remove it.

You cannot edit queues created with system-config-printer using the
CUPS web interface; you must instead create the queues using the CUPS
web interface.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
