Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189479
Add a PDF printer.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
This is a dupe of Bug 97705, but I'm reopening it against Fedora Core 5 since
that's what's current.
I do not see "Create a PDF document" in Mozilla Firefox or Thunderbird. I do
see it available in gedit's Print dialog. I believe a PDF printer needs to be
available to _all_ applications which print and should be shareable to other
systems on the network (in case of network archiving or something less common).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unknown. Fedora Core 5's System -> Administration -> Printing -> Help only
shows Contents F1. There is no About box to tell what version it is.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla Firefox or Thunderbird.
2. File -> Print... -> Printer Name: [unable to select a PDF printer]
Printer Name: [unable to select a PDF printer]
Printer Name: "PDF printer" should be an option in the pull down menu.
It may be easier to create a PDF printer in samba than in CUPS. See
I believe this is being worked on.
Its being worked on upstream.
