Description Brian McMinn 2005-07-13 01:12:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511

Description of problem:
system-config-printer does not allow me to mark a printer as shared.

I did a clean load of fc4.

My new hardware only supported USB printers so I connected my printer via a USB cable.

I added this printer via CUPS (accessed via http://localhost:631) and printed a test page.

I ran "system-config-printer" from the shell, selected the new printer (named "toy") and attempted to do Action->Sharing... to mark it as shared.  No sharing window came up and the following was printed to the shell:

bray 11 $ system-config-printer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py", line 683, in sharing_button_clicked
    queue_dict = self.name_dict[name]
KeyError: 'toy'

I was able to mark the printer as the default so part of the interface recognizes the printer.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. oops - it's in the description

Expected Results:  I'm pretty sure I've done this before because this printer was shared before under fc1, fc2, and fc3.

Thanks for the report.  The bug here is that you *could* click
Action->Sharing... -- for browsed queues, this should not be possible.  Queues
created by system-config-printer, and queues created by CUPS, can only be
modified by the tool that created them. (This is not exactly ideal.)

Fixed in CVS.
