Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-08-25 18:20:23 UTC
Description of problem:
When I run a2ps with the -P and -2 options, instead of sending the output to the
printer given as the argument to the -P flag, a2ps creates a file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo "foo" > foo.txt
2. rm -f hplj2
3. a2ps -P hplj2 -2 foo.txt
Actual results:
You get a new file named "hplj2", which contains the generated postscript.

Expected results:
A printout.

This problem exists in the just released Fedora Core 6 as well and
also affects the -d option (which previously sent to the default printer).
Instead of going to default printer, it goes to stdout.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2006-10-27 12:42:11 UTC
Build requires cups.
