hang when trying to edit printer from previous Fedora
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
I upgraded to Fedora Core 5, and now when I try to edit a printer defined in a
previous Fedora Core (version 4, I think), system-config-printer hangs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define a printer "foo" in Fedora Core 4.
2. Upgrade to Fedora Core 5.
3. Run system-config-printer
4. Click the printer "foo" to select it
5. Click the "Edit" button
GUI hangs and console shows these messages:
The printer HP LaserJet 2420 (PPD) (ID: ppd2) is not supported by the driver ppd!
Couldn't load driver information.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py", line 600, in edit_button_clicked
if self.editQueue.editQueueDialog (iter):
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/editQueue.py", line 421, in editQueueDialog
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py", line 849, in
mfr = self.conf.foomatic.id_dict[id].make
That it works. :)
In the previous Fedora Core, I could edit the printer. Also, now I can edit
Hmm, looks like you need to import the PPD again. That's unfortunate. :-((
At least in Fedora Core 6 onwards this will not be a problem, however, since we
now configure CUPS directly rather than indirectly through foomatic.
