Description Tim Waugh 2006-07-27 09:27:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Even when a queue has been automatically created by hal-lpadmin, eggcups shows a
dialog asking which driver to use.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in a printer
2. Log in on VT1 and observe 'lpstat -s' -- queue is already added
3. Log in via GDM
Actual results:
'Select driver' dialog

Expected results:
No dialog

Additional info:
This patch makes it work as I expect it to.

Why is eggcups looking at gconf?  What's that for?

How does it work in stateless?  If I reboot my computer the queue should have
been removed.  eggcups uses gconf to remeber what was chosen last so it can map
a printer not in the foomatics database to one that is in it.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2006-07-28 12:38:14 EDT
Differently. :-)  With stateless, we'll have to remember whole PPD files, and
gconf just isn't appropriate.

The stateless code isn't completely fleshed out yet, but the original outline
design is here:
