We have not shipped galeon in RHEL since AS 2.1. Why are QE taking packages
from outside the RHEL5 base and filing bugs? This is the second beta bug I've
gotten filed on things that are not in RHEL5.
Yeah, sorry. Reopening against Fedora, as the package in question came from
It is disabled if the selected printer is a CUPS-configured printer, because the
printing command doesn't make a lot of sense in that case. On my system if I
select the ghostscript/default printer, the print command is reenabled and
indeed used, unless i'm mistaken.
so my initial reaction would be to close this as 'not a bug': the field is
disabled because of the way your printers are configured.
Denis, you are correct. I just wonder if the white textfield would be replaced
with a plain text saying something like "CUPS style" in that case. If the
command (lpr) is not applicable with CUPS printers, it shouldn't be displayed at
all, should it.
But if you feel like NOTABUGing this, go ahead.
Jan, thanks for the confirmation. You have a point but I will close the bug
nonetheless. Galeon is no longer under active development so I try to save
Philip Langdale's (the upstream developper) time for critical issues...
