Printers added with spadmin don't appear in print dialogue
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a printer with spadmin as root
2.open a document and try to print to that printer
printer not in print dialogue
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
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.
