Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201800
cups 1.2.2 puts server hostname in all printer queue names
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
In the change from 1.2.1 to 1.2.2, the print queue names for remote queues have
the hostname in them and the short name does not work.
Previously I had:
device for angelou: ipp://wind.cora.nwra.com:631/printers/angelou
device for dali: ipp://wind.cora.nwra.com:631/printers/dali
now I have:
device for angelou@wind: ipp://wind.cora.nwra.com:631/printers/angelou
device for dali@wind: ipp://wind.cora.nwra.com:631/printers/dali
and I can no longer do "lpr -Pdali".
Submitted CUPS STR#1893 on it as well
(Just including upstream bug URL:)
FWIW, I see this here too recently.
1.2.2-1.6 seems to not exhibit the problem, but I needed to remove
/var/cache/cups/remote.cache to clear out the queues with hostnames.
There is a 1.2.2-1.7 already in the pipe-line, but I have added a bit in the
spec file for 1.8 to remove remote.cache on upgrade. Thanks for testing.
Fixed in 1.2.2-1.8. Thanks!
