Description Nils Philippsen 2004-12-07 15:28:41 UTC
Description of problem:

If e.g. the printing destination is currently not available (say cupsd crashed),
OOo doesn't report an error when the underlying lpr/lp clearly brings an error
message (can be seen when starting OOo from a terminal) and status (can bee seen
when manually running lpr/lp or stracing OOo).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
0. Take care that printing on the destination you want to try for testing
doesn't work, e.g. firewall off the printing host with "iptables -I INPUT 1 -d
<printhostip> -j REJECT"
1. print something with lpr/lp, e.g. "lpr -P<printhost> /etc/hosts", see error
message and status
2. print something with OOo to the same destination
Actual results:

It seems like the print job had been fulfilled.

Expected results:

It should have popped up an error dialog that printing didn't work (and possibly
necessary info to aid in debugging the problem).
