Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214598
dbus interface misnamed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:36 EST
10-hal_lpadmin.fdi must use the interface name expected by eggcups, which is
org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Printer, not com.redhat.Hal.Device.Printer
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux release. Product Management has requested further review
of this request by Red Hat Engineering. This request is not yet committed for
inclusion in release.
By using the incorrect iface name ... what breaks?
When a USB printer is connected, if we don't have an exact model match in the
database the user is prompted to select one. What breaks is that after that,
nothing happens. The user is prompted, but no printer is configured.
Thanks for the details Tim. After discussing with Desktop QA (rousseau) ...
QE_ACK for beta2
Steps to reproduce:
1) plug in a usb printer for which foomatic does not contain an exactly matching
driver, in my case it was an Epson Stylus CX7800
2) wait for the driver selection dialog to come up
3) select the best-matching driver and press ok
4) start system-config-printer and expect to see the newly added printer
result: the newly added printer is not there
Another fix that is needed in that fdi_file is that according to davidz, we need
to make introspection work for the interface.
ok, I have it working now. The one thing I was missing was that eggcups _does_
have a patch to use com.redhat.Hal, too. But that just doesn't work. So eggcups
needs to be reverted to use org.freedesktop.Hal too.

Fixed in package is hal-cups-utils-0.6.2-5.
Also requires desktop-printing-0.19-17.1.el5 for bug #214623.
Okay, pulling in the new desktop-printing package will require additional scrubbing.
That package includes bug#214623 and bug#212763 which are *not* on the
2146232 is part of this bug, if you read it
212763 is necessary to have working print feedback on the desktop. Isn't that
covered by the release critera ?
