Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200143
Useless Info line in /etc/cups/printers.conf
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:26 EST
Description of problem:
I would like a way in the export xml file, or in the printconf dialog, to set
the description of the printer.
In /etc/cups/printers.conf the Info line is always 'Created by redhat-config-
printer 0.6.x' which is useless to my MacOX X users who print through my
system. I can edit the printers.conf, but of course that is recreated each
restart of cups.
Please, is there a keyword I can place in my xml file, which is imported by
printconf-tui --Ximport, that will set this line to something useful?

Unfortunately not. :-(
This is a limitation of the redhat-config-printer application, and will be
addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 by eliminating the XML step altogether
and having the printer configuration tool communicate with CUPS directly.
Ok, great! I assume there will still be a way of saving the config and reimport
for fast system restore.
Oh, and sorry for the double post bugzilla gave me an error that 'product did
not exist' and I thought it had failed.
