system-config-printer corrupts configurations made by cups web based administration tool without warning
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
Create some printers using the cups web based administration tool.
Then run system-config-printer. It will convert some or all of the
printers to raw queues and break the old configuration without any
warning. system-config-printer should at the very least warn before
doing this. Better yet would be to make the two systems compatible so
it doesn't matter how you create printers - command line, web base,
system-config-printer tui or gui.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fixed in CVS. It will no longer attempt to import CUPS queues.
