Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219806
Print dialog can't print to raw queues
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
The print dialog can't print to raw queues, i.e. queues that have no PPD. With
these queues, the HTTP 'GET' request will get a 404 response.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.lpadmin -p rawqueue -v file:/dev/lp0
2.Start OpenOffice.org Writer
4.Click on rawqueue
Print button not clickable, error message in xsession errors about the GET response
Print button clickable, just no PPD options to change.
Users might configure raw queues for SMB printers, for example.
*** Bug 213119 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
We just should pass the application's PostScript straight through for raw
queues, and obviously there are no options to tweak in that case.
can we figure out if the queue is raw from cups? Should be an easy fix in that
You get an HTTP 404 when trying to fetch the PPD. That means there is no PPD,
and so it's raw.
Matthias Clasen: can You give some status update on that bug. Some applications
are unable to print!
I'll build an update with a fix for this shortly
Update is in testing now
gtk2-2.10.8-3.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
