Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 160827
redhat-config-printer crashed after detecting numeric printer queue name
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:18 EST
Description of problem:
Used CUPS web GUI to create a printer queue named 2232.
Start redhat-config-printer, and redhat-config-printer will crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use cups webgui to create a printer named 2232
3.redhat-config-printer will crash.
FWIW, the code that imports CUPS-created queues into the redhat-config-printer
configuration database has been removed since Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, so
future releases should not be affected.
You cannot in general create a queue in CUPS and be able to edit it correctly
using redhat-config-printer. It is better, if you intend to use
redhat-config-printer, to create the queue there in the first instance.
Alternatively, you can use the CUPS web interface exclusively.
Since this work-around is available, I am closing this bug as WONTFIX.
