Description Tim Waugh 2006-08-24 08:46:49 EDT
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.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2006-11-01 05:55:26 EST
..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.
