Description Armijn Hemel 2006-07-10 11:27:45 UTC
Description of problem:

When I want to print to PDF "it doesn't always work", because the save button in
the dialog where you can change the name of the output file is non-functional.
When I first change the name via the dialog and then use any of the other
options to print, either via the "print" button in the lower right or the print
preview window, it does work as expected.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a few photos
2. Go to printer tab
3. choose "Create a PDF document"
4. Change the location
5. in the dialog click "save"
Actual results:

Nothing happened

Expected results:

I expected the file to be saved.

Comment 1 Armijn Hemel 2006-07-10 12:36:30 UTC
Also tested this on rawhide (fc6 with updates).

I've given the problem a bit more thought. If the "save" button in the file
dialog when chosing a different file would not be called "save" it would not be
so confusing.

Comment 2 Matt Domsch 2006-10-12 15:57:03 UTC
I've forwarded this issue to the upstream author to comment upon.

Comment 3 Armijn Hemel 2007-03-14 16:16:02 UTC
So, the file dialog has not been changed. I personally still find this confusing.


Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2007-09-20 13:55:59 UTC
I've pinged the upstream author about this.  Setting NEEDINFO waiting on him.

Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2007-09-27 04:17:07 UTC
I've built gpp-0.7.0 for Fedora 7 (testing) and Fedora 8.  They appear to
resolve this issue in my testing.

Please test one if these if you can, and re-open the issue if you find it is not
resolved to your satisfaction.


Comment 6 Matt Domsch 2007-09-27 13:46:15 UTC
This update in testing needs people to verify that it works for them.  If 
indeed it does work for you, please go to:

and vote as such.  This will speed up it's release as an official update.


Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2007-10-11 22:53:18 UTC
gpp-0.7.0-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
