Description of problem:
Some printer driver options, like Dither Alghoritm or Quality, are
determined by the Printout Mode value. Whan changing Printout Mode
value, the dependent options should be updated as well or simply
displayed as "Controlled by Printout Mode". This cause that driver
parameters displayed are wrong. You can see the correct options using
the CUPS admin web interface.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start system-config-printer
2. select a queue and press "Edit"
3. select the "Driver options" tab
4. change the value of "Printout Mode"
Actual Results: The values of Dither Alghoritm, Quality, Ghostscript
resolution and others should change according to Printout Mode or,
better, changed to "Controlled by Printout Mode" or similar string.
Expected Results: Those values don't change
You can see the correct behavior using the CUPS admin web tool.
Which driver do you mean? hpijs? gimp-print?
Anyway this is entirely controlled by the foomatic data.
I choose the raccomended driver: gimp-print-ijs
FYI the selected printer is an Epson Stylus C64, but is happens with
an Epson Stylus C70 as well.
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.
It is still an issue with current FC3 updates.
Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. This bug was
originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant
changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed.
It has remained in NEEDINFO status for quite a long period of time, asking for
confirmation on a more recent (still fully supported) version of Fedora Core.
Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
