Comment 1 Chris Bagwell 2005-01-02 14:01:00 EST
Little extra information on reproducing this.

I have a pre-existing Epson R300 configured using the
system-config-printer tool.  Its a USB printer but the device is using
"hal:" instead of /dev/usb/lp0 that was used in previous releases. 
Since I did not run the tool from the command line when I first
created the printer, I don't know if it printed the messages then.

If I select "Edit" from system-config-printer, thats when I get the
text output requesting to bugzilla it.

Created attachment 109332 [details]

Please save this attachment and copy it to:


Is the correct model automatically selected now?
Comment 3 Chris Bagwell 2005-01-04 20:02:30 EST
Yes, the above attachment with the new <usb></usb> info made the errro text
message stop printing... 

Also, when I looked at the "Queue Type" screen in syste-config-printer, the
/dev/usb/lp0 has the phrase "EPSON Stylus Photo R300" beside it which I think is
new.  The "autoselect" button on the same screen also correctly selects the
right driver.
Thank you for your help.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-01-05 07:33:06 EST
How about if you click "Next" on that screen?  It should select the correct
model from the list.
Comment 5 Chris Bagwell 2005-01-05 10:21:08 EST
I don't see a "Next" button but I think its doing what your asking.

Selecting "Edit" button from system-config-printer on an existing printer takes
me to a window and I get no error text any more on terminal window I ran it from
.  Selecting the "Queue Type" tab I then select Locally-connected and
/dev/usb/lp0.  Next I click the "autoselect" button and it takes me to the
Printer Driver tab with the Stylus Photo R300 correctly selected.

Alternate path that also started working with attachment:  I create a new
printer by clicking on the "New" button on system-config-printer.  I click
"Forward" twice, then select "Locally-connected" and "/dev/usb/lp0".  Clicking
"Forward" button again takes me to a screen that has the Epson Stylus Photo R300

I assume by "Next" you meant "Forward" on the create printer screen.  Yes, this
started auto-selecting correct driver when I used to manually select the driver
when creating the queue.

I have system-config-printer-0.6.116-1 in case that is of interest.

Thanks again,

Ah, Forward is what I meant.  Thanks.
