printer setup fails
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
When I try to configure a printer without samba and ncpfs,
the printer setup icon fails to come up. This is very
frustrating since I do not either of these.
do you get an error message or stack trace?
What happens when you run printtool from the command line?
H'mmm. Here were the exact set of circumstances.
I had just finished upgrading from 5.1 to 5.2. As an additional
printer, I have the hp 710 installed with the package from
//www.rpi.edu/~normat/technical/ppa/ (GREAT SOFTWARE).
When I went to the printtool to add printer and the samba error box
appeared. There were no printers displayed in the tool,
even though there was a printcap file. Every time I hit ok to the
samba error responce, the netware printer warning appeared. After
hitting ok the second time, the warning dissapeared and so did the
I had to delete queues by hand and readd them by the printtool.
I cant get it to fail now. It must have been an upgrade problem.
No, unfortunately did NOT get an error trace and I cant make it fail
again. This is as frustrating as the initial failure.
if you can replicate this, re-open the bug.
