Description Colin Ager 2006-07-05 12:28:19 EDT
Description of problem:Since doing a fairly major update wih YUM I can no longer
print from the command line using LPR/LLPR. I get the lpr gui but when I select
a printer and click print the command line reports invalid option -d then
invalid option -n and finally invalid option -p. Other applications which print
via cups work ok but Mozilla(suite) seems to be using lpr and also cannot print.

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

How reproducible:every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1Enter Shell

2.cd /etc (for example)
3.ls | lpr
Actual results:As stated above

Expected results:Print gui->select printer->print->printer activated

Additional info:lpr/llpr worked normally before update.

I have discovered that the gui I referred to is in fact generated by the Samsung
"Linux Printing Package" and and in the Samsung FAQ part of Linux Printing.org
there is a note that it doesn't work with CUPS as it sends invalid options
lp.(NB  It did work before the YUM update which I think changed something in
Mozilla.There is also a referance to a script which can correct this but the
links are broken.I have found an updated version of LPP
(20050422164643515_lpp-1.1.7-27-I386.tar.gz) updated 2006-03-29
on the Samsung support site and on removing the old version and loading this I
can now print from the shell. Printing from Mozilla is still a bit flakey but
can be done with a bit of fiddling.

Problem originated with Samsung package -> out of our control.
