OOo doesn't report error from the printing subsystem
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
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):
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
It seems like the print job had been fulfilled.
It should have popped up an error dialog that printing didn't work (and possibly
necessary info to aid in debugging the problem).
