Description Robert Nichols 2005-01-30 00:47:25 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
There is no way to tell cups-config-daemon to ignore a printer that is
handled by a vendor-supplied CUPS driver that is not configurable via
foomatic tools.  The result is that every time I turn on my
(configured and working) Epson Stylus 4600 printer I get a popup
dialog informing me that the driver was not detected and asking me to
select a driver.  I have my choice of clicking on "Cancel", knowing
that I will be asked again the next time the printer is turned on, or
selecting some driver from the supplied list and causing a bogus print
queue to be created.

There need to be a way to tell cups-config-daemon to ignore a device,
similar to the "ignore" option in kudzu.  Currently, the only
satisfactory workaround is "chkconfig cups-config-daemon off".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on a USB printer model that is not handled through a driver
known to foomatic.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
