Description Roy Stogner 2005-07-05 13:31:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/false StumbleUpon/1.75

Description of problem:
system-config-printer finds no driver match for a connected Epson Stylus C86 printer

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect Epson Stylus C86 to USB port
2. Power on printer
3. Attempt to add a queue with system-config-printer

Actual Results:  system-config-printer gives the following message:


No match for USB device:
  mfr "EPSON"
  model "Stylus C86"
  desc "EPSON Stylus C86"
  cmdset "ESCPL2,BDC,D4"
Please report this message in Bugzilla:


The printer works beautifully if the C84 driver is chosen, but users shouldn't have to guess or websearch to find that out.

Expected Results:  The printer should have been recognized and it's driver autoselected or at least selectable via the correct model number.

Thanks for the report.

This was fixed upstream.
Comment 2 Graham Campbell 2006-03-25 14:13:48 EST
So when are we going to see this? It is now 2006-3-25 and I am running Linux
and still get this problem (and the message to report it via bugzilla)
