Can't set paper tray with printer
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:43:51 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora Core v4 final
I have a postscript printer with multiple trays. I have the PPD file for the
printer and I installed it with the following command.
lpadmin -p lp126 -E -P /tmp/lp126.ppd -v http://lp126.gurulabs.com/printer/
The printer shows up and I'm able to see and use all the trays and options when
printing with OpenOffice or KDE's kprinter.
However, when I use the GNOME print dialog and go to the "Paper" tab, the botton
option: "Paper Tray" is greyed out and reads "No options are defined".
So, to re-cap, other printing software is able to communicate with CUPS and get
a proper list of paper trays, but not GNOME.
I was expecting this to work. Another data point. I had a highly tweaked FC3 box
that I rebuilt rawhide gnome 2.10 RPMS for from the April '05 timeframe and
installed. With the rebuild rawhide gnome 2.10 RPMs, the Paper Tray setting
started working on that FC3 box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
BTW, I also deleted the printer with "lpadmin -x lp126" and re-added the printer
using system-config-printer (I imported the PPD file using s-c-p too). No change.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
It works fine in FC6
