Description R. Pao 2006-04-20 08:44:07 EDT
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.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open Mozilla Firefox or Thunderbird.
2.  File -> Print... -> Printer Name: [unable to select a PDF printer]

Actual results:
Printer Name: [unable to select a PDF printer]

Expected results:
Printer Name: "PDF printer" should be an option in the pull down menu.

Additional info:
It may be easier to create a PDF printer in samba than in CUPS.  See

I believe this is being worked on.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2006-06-20 01:23:34 EDT
Its being worked on upstream.
