eog uses printing system improperly
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:50:33 EDT
Description of problem:

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

Can you please check, whether this bug is still present in Fedora 7 or 8 and
close it with "CURRENTRELEASE - Fedora 7" in case it has been fixed. In case it
is not fixed, please provide more detailed instructions on how to reproduce this
Yes. bug still presents. But in slightly different way.
Open a folder with several images. Open any of it with eog. Press View->Image
Collection to display all images in this folder. Select the first image and
print it. It should be printed normally. Now select next image and print it. For
me I had to wait a minute until "Printer error" message appeared in notification
area. After that in about another minute image was printed normally. So
basically I can print images but with strange delays and messages. All other
applications I use (OpenOffice, KColourPaint) print everything properly.
