Description Petr Baudis 2005-02-07 07:32:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
The TUI version always (100% reproducibility) crashes with a traceback
when I change the printer's driver settings. Apparently I can't change
the printer driver neither (assigning it for the first time works).
The changes made are not applied.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the TUI
2. add some printer
3. change anything in printer's driver settings
4. press [Done]

Actual Results:  Immediatelly crashes with a backtrace.

Expected Results:  It shouldn't crash but apply the settings instead. ;-)

Additional info:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/system-config-printer", line 12, in ?

KeyError: '_chrlic-1s'

(chrlic-1s is name of the printer)

I forgot to add that it apparently works fine with the GUI version.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-02-08 05:46:24 EST
Please try this test update:


Does it fix the problem for you?
Comment 3 Petr Baudis 2005-02-08 07:51:26 EST
Thanks, that fixes it!
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-02-08 07:56:37 EST
Great, thanks for testing.  There's one more place that it seems to happen, I
now discovered: when you cancel a change.  I've fixed it in CVS.
