Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203905
CUPS copies old PPD options to new PPD
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
When we change the PPD of a printer, we needn't ask the user whether to copy the
options over or to keep it as is -- CUPS always copies over the old options
(In fact it does this blindly, without checking that the enums have matching
choices [STR #1929], but this is a CUPS bug that will be fixed).
So we ought to take out that screen from the change-PPD dialog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
..or alternatively, fix the implementation by setting the driver to 'raw' first
and then supplying the PPD. This prevents CUPS from copying the options over.
Fixed in update: system-config-printer-0.7.35-1.fc6
