Duplex options for non-duplex-capable printer
Last modified: 2009-10-22 11:41:54 EDT
Description of problem:
The HP PSC 2210 Foomatic/hpijs PPD includes a duplex option even though this
model is not duplex-capable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
For the PSC 2210 in particular there is no duplex unit available for the
printer, so the constraints should just be adjusted.
In general though, configuration parameters that need optional accessories such
as a duplex unit should use the InstallableOptions section of the PPD.
Hmm, actually for the hpijs printers it looks like we don't get to "opt out"
individual models from duplexing without patching it in the spec file. :-(
Still occurs in Fedora 8.
Still in Fedora 9.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Still in Fedora 11.
The hpcups driver (the preferred driver) has 'Installable Option' for this.
