driver check fails for commands in a pipeline
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
This causes printing to a remote cups printer to fail.
The default error message "usr/lib/cups/backend/ipp failed" is not very helpful.
Only by changing the loglevel to debug can it be seen that page rendering fails
because this package is missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
unknown. (assumed always).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6 using defaults.
2. Configure a remote cups printer using cups web interfaces on
http://localhost:631 or by using the Gnome menu item
3. Try to print a test page.
No jobs are printing
Pretty colors and text on paper
Until packages is added to FC6 by default, simply do a:
yum install pnm2ppa
What does 'rpm -q system-config-printer' say? The updated package should have
warned about this.
[root@tuxdev ~]# rpm -q system-config-printer
I assure you that I've never seen any warning about pnm2ppa.
Oh, there was a bug in the checking code, now fixed in CVS.
Okay. I guess we'll have to take your word for it :)
The fix will be in a future update shortly.
Please try 0.7.43-1.fc6 from updates-testing:
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update 'system-config-printer*'
When setting up a new queue that requires a package not installed you should get
a warning message.
Fixed in update: system-config-printer-0.7.45-1.fc6
I did the update, but since I had already fixed the problem by installing the
needed package pnm2ppa manually.
(brain fart) comment#8 cont... I didn't get a warning message.
