Description of problem:
If a USB printer is plugged in while I am running a GNOME session then
I am prompted to choose a driver for the printer. Once I choose a
driver, cups is configured.
However, if the printer is already plugged in when I start my GNOME
session then I am not prompted for a driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure that you do not have a GNOME session running.
2. Plug in a USB printer.
3. Start a GNOME session.
Actual Results: The system never prompts for a printer driver choice
or configures the printer.
Expected Results: The printer should be configured when the user
starts a GNOME session. The behavior should mimic the scenario when
the user plugs in the printer with a GNOME session already running.
Can you attach the output of lshal here. Printers should be
configured when they are plugged in regaurdless if a user session is
running. The only time this does not happen is when it is your first
time plugging in the printer (it has not been previously configured),
the model is not in the database and you open up your session. After
you have configured the printer it should be configured until you log
in as another user or wipe your gconf keys. Try wiping your keys with
this command and try again:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /system/printing
As for logging in and then getting a dialog for unconfigured printers
that are already plugged in, I need to fix that.
This is essentially what I have reported:

Everything else works great.
This is done in upstream CVS now. Colin can you mark this as modified
when you build the package and Michael can you test and close if it
works for you.
Package is built in rawhide. Michael can you test?
Bug #132388 is back. I can't test this until 132388 is resolved.
Will reopen if I see this problem again.
