Description Paul Thomas 2005-03-22 05:34:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 Firefox/0.10.1

Description of problem:
Running system-config-printer correctly identifies a HP Laserjet 2420 printer attached to /dev/usb/lp0 but still prompts for a driver.  Setting generic postscript printer is a perfectly acceptable workaround.

Foomatic reports:

No match for USB device:
  mfr "Hewlett-Packard"
  model "hp LaserJet 2420"
  desc "Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 2420"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run system-printer-config
2. Select /dev/usb/lp0 printer queue

Actual Results:  Move to driver selection form.

Expected Results:  Driver should have been picked up automatically.

Additional info:

See above.
