Description lannet 2006-03-28 01:38:13 UTC
Description of problem:
When using system-config-printer in ncurses mode, there is no ability to select
the IPP protocol.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This has been a problem in earlier versions of FC

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
The workaround is to set the printer up as an LPD printer and then edit the
/etc/cups/printers.conf file.  A modified config shows up as an LPD printer in
system-config-printer (ncurses) as /printers/printername@location.tld

This should not be necesary as system-config-printer in ncurses mode has very
valid use on servers as opposed to desktops, which latter have the gui mode
which does allow IPP to be selected.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2006-03-28 08:08:09 UTC
This is fixed in the design of the new system-config-printer, in that you can
remotely configure X-less servers.
