Description of problem:
FC2 system-config-printer and/or system-config-printer-gui has a bug
when selecting "text only" printers. It will still put a postcript
.ppd file in /etc/cups/ppd/ and try to print P.S. to the text only
printer. "Raw Print" is not acceptable since I can NOT add form feed.
There is an open bug on the RHEL side noted as fixed...
Please port the correction over to FC2.
PS problem exists as of:
fully updated otherwise as of 10 minutes ago.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup text only printer in gui to print to a text/line printer
2. try to print text test page
3. junk comes out
4. look at the .ppd file in /etc/cups/ppd/ It will be postscript.
Actual Results: prints PostScript
Expected Results: Prints text
Correction: I was trying to upgrade to the noted system-config-printer
versions above. The updated FC2 version that is installed on my system is:
This is fixed in FC3.
I gues bugs aren't being fixed in FC2 now :(
the system-config-printer-0.6.116-1 and
system-config-printer-gui-0.6.116-1 packages build from FC3 source on
FC2 mostly work. The gui can not seem to edit any entries. It can
create however. The TUI version can edit, however.
