Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133645
No way to select printer
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:50 EST
Description of problem:
In epiphany, mozilla and firefox, there is no way to select which
printer to print to - unless you know how to specify it to lpr.
The reason i chose to submit the bug to epiphany, is that it is the
Opera, konqueror, gedit and even IE does this corectly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hit "print" in any of the gecko-based browsers mentioned
2. Try to figure out why there is no dropdown etc
3. Hit print and go seaching all over the building
It can be quite hard to determine where the paper is going to come out
- and even harder to select where.
It should display a nice dropdown of aviable printers, from which the
user can choose.
In my opinion, this should be a "blocker" or at least a "target" bug -
deciding where to print is quite critical when deploying in a larger
firefox-0.10.0-1.0PR1.0 has a nice dropdown listing all my network
mozilla-1.7.2-0.3.0 has a dropdown but only 'Postscript/default' is
epiphany-1.3.8-0.3.1 still has the field with 'lpr.cups' in it -
useless to me.
i can confirm that firefox now works.
