Description Eric Sandeen 2006-11-02 12:04:34 EST

Would it be possible for system-config-printer to have a Location text field as
well as a "Short description" field?

On some OSes (like OSX) the location of the printer is shown in the selection
dialog, and it looks like system-config-printer puts the "description" into that
same field in printers.conf:

[root@neon ufs]# grep -i "info\|locat" /etc/cups/printers.conf
Location Color hp4550
Info Color hp4550

for an organization w/ the same sort of printer in multiple locations, it might
be handy to fill in the location with something unique.

Already done in FC6.

Sorry about that, guess it's time to upgrade :)
