Annoying select-driver-dialog when turning on the printer
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
When turning on an USB printer (HP Photosmart PSC 1350), KDE shows a
dialog where I can select a printer driver.
This happens everytime when I turn on the printer, and on KDE startup
also. The printer itself works fine and is configured by cups separately
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use an USB printer
2. configure it (e.g. with http://localhost:631 or system-config-printer)
3. turn off the printer
5. login into KDE
6. turn off the printer
7. turn on the printer
after 5. and 7. a dialog appears asking for the printer-driver
no dialog appears
I do not know if hal is the right component; please reassign if
needed. Machine with printer is unavailable ATM so I can not provide
further details now.
I think this is hal-cups-utils - reassigning.
Please post the output of lshal and ps -aux here.
Oh and the contents of your /etc/cups/printers.conf file

(This is a mass update to bugs which have been in NEEDINFO unmodified for over a
year and are for a currently unsupported version of Fedora Core.)
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.
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.
