Description David Kaplan 2006-05-05 15:06:17 EDT
Description of problem:
I added a PDF converter with spadmin and it does not appear in the print
dialogue of openoffice (probably because this is now done through gnome-print).
 The pdf converter is useful even though export to PDF exists because of another
bug with export to pdf which I will report shortly (basically, does not handle
embedded postscript images correctly).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a printer with spadmin as root
2.open a document and try to print to that printer
Actual results:
printer not in print dialogue

Expected results:
should be there.

This simply conflicts with using the native GNOME/Gtk print dialogs. There's no
way around it, either the native dialogs are used and there's no ability to have
the custom psprint one, or the built-in one is used.

I guess the best I can do is to make it possible to toggle using the built-in
dialog in a pinch.

Or fix the pdf eps inclusion so the workaround of using the spadmin (which we're
trying to deprecate) isn't required

For FC-5 we'll revert to the old print dialog, for FC-6 we'll use the new
gtkunixprintdialog and make it togglable on and off with the "use OOo/System
dialogs" option
Comment 3 David Kaplan 2006-05-23 09:17:57 EDT
Sounds like a plan.  Also, in openoffice, in the file menu below print there is
a "printer settings" option that currently takes you to an OOo config dialogue -
this is inconsistent and confusing.

openoffice.org-2.0.2-5.12.2 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
