Description of problem:
Upon using command line system-config-printer after kde driven printer
config failed (it evaporated on startup) the following message was
spat out by foomatic:
[root@iridium ~]# system-config-printer
No match for USB device:
model "Lexmark Z52"
desc "Lexmark Z52"
Please report this message in Bugzilla:
Choose 'foomatic' as the component.
At this pint the shell (gnu terminal shell - bash) hung.
I have two USB printers, an HP and the Lexmark above, which used to
work fine. Apparantly they dont now! ;-)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: As shown in comments above.
Expected Results: Identify printers and move to configuration
parameters contol screen.
Used to work fine: I think it is the latest (08th/09th Sept) updates
that have blown it away.
[root@iridium ~]# rpm -qa | grep foomatic

Not sure what you mean by this. The shell won't return until the
graphical config tool has finished. What did the config tool do?
The 'no match' message is entirely harmless (but useful to me --
thanks). You should have been able to carry on, although you would
have needed to select the printer model yourself.
Well, when I say "hung" I mean I did not get the graphical user
interface. More of the "Vanishing" interface when I tried to start in
graphical mode... What is quite annoying now is that the behavior
seems to have stopped: I am wondering if it was some other KDE issue I
was having? All rather bizzare, and now seemingly unrepeatable. Thanks
for your kind attention though. (Confused, scratching his head, he
wanders off into the forest named Fedora ;-) )
Ah HA! I have noticed a critical thing I did _not_ say. The reason I
was using the command line interface was because every time I tried
the graphical interface (aka KDE printer config from menu) it would
pop into existence, then immediatly pop out of existance again! Then I
resorted to the shel/command line, then as above.....
Does that still happen?
No feedback; assuming not.
