Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193204
eggcups applet broken after updating system
Last modified: 2008-02-27 06:56:58 EST
Description of problem: After yum updating my FC5 systems last night (5/24/06)
the eggcups applet is no longer working properly. When I print now the eggcups
applet will appear, but when the job completes it doesn't detect it and thus
Worse is this bug causes the cups error_log and access_log to be flooded w/
errors. The following is being logged repeatedly to /var/log/cups/error_log
every 5 seconds:
E [25/May/2006:18:52:42 -0400] Get-Job-Attributes client-error-not-found: Job
#10 does not exist!
And the following to the cups access_log every 5 seconds:
localhost - - [25/May/2006:18:51:47 -0400] "POST /printers/three_east HTTP/1.1"
200 139 Get-Job-Attributes client-error-not-found
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. print file (from gnome)
Actual results: eggcups applet never goes away and /var/log/cups/error_log and
/var/log/cups/access_log get flooded
Expected results: eggcups applet disappears when print job completes
Additional info: appears to be the same as (or at least related to) bug 190725
the whole print system is getting overhauled. This bug is most likely due to
the change to cups 1.2. We will have a look at the issue when we get around to
fixing up user feedback area of printing.
Personally, I have this bug since the beggining (at least since FC3).
I mean #132289 has never been solved.
I'm really not a specialist but maybe using job-uuid included in the new 1.2
cups instead of job-id could do the trick ?

Exactly what I'd initially thought too. However rolling back to the cups 1.1
packages didn't fix it, so it seems there's something more involved.

Does this mean we are stuck with this behavior until FC6? It fills logs and
keeps laptop disks spinning. Very user-unfriendly.
What I am seeing on fc6 is eggcups filling ~/.xsession-errors with a neverending
Warning **: IPP request failed with status 1030
We should probably fix that.
Seeing this also on several machines (x86_64) here with FC6.
Printing to a remote printer (cups / FC5), I got two printer icons in the panel
and a load of errors continuing to come in ~/.xsession-errors.
