Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2005-10-11 11:31:23 EDT
The 'no match' message is harmless (it just means that the correct printer model
is not automatically selected for you).  I have committed the fix into CVS.

It does not prevent the printer from printing, so something else is also going on.

Please do the following:

1. Become root, using 'su -' in a terminal window
2. Stop cups with '/sbin/service cups stop'
3. Clear out the CUPS error log with '>/var/log/cups/error_log'
4. Start cups again with '/sbin/service cups start'
5. Try to print a test page to that queue from system-config-printer (using the
Test menu)
6. When it fails, please attach the /var/log/cups/error_log message to this bug

(In reply to comment #2)

The text of my message above was lost and only the attachment survived.  I just
wanted to say that, in fact, following the instructions I was able to print the
test page and to use the printer.  I don't see errors.  I included anyway the
content of the log file. Thanks,
