Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 20465
Typo in printerdb causing error in printtool
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
In the printerdb entries for the ALPS printers, the Resolution field is
misspelt as "Resoltion". (Same type of bug as no 13482 really but causes a
noticeable problem) That's what is causing the error message in Printtool
if you try to select this printer.
This is in version 1.63 of rhs-printfilters.
I've also pulled down the latest Rawhide version (1.81) and noted that the
MD2K entry had been fixed, but the MD5K entry hasn't.
I saw the bug report for printtool (11398) which is classed as 'Resolved',
but then it isn't really a printtool bug and it isn't really resolved so
I'm reporting it as a new bug.
Looking through the printerdb file, I also noticed that in the comments for the
Apple ImageWriter low-res and hi-res drivers the resolutions are 160x72 and
160x144 respectively, whereas in the Resolution entries themselves they are
120x72 and 120x144. Which is correct?
Also, the C.Itoh M8510 comment says 160x144 and the entry is 100x100. Again,
these are in both the old (1.63) and latest (1.81) versions of rhs-printfilters.
This seems to be fixed in the foomatic database, from a quick inspection.
