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]
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):
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.
