Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222490
media source setting not retained after apply button
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
Under printer options, I set the media source to tray 3. After clicking apply,
the setting changes to tray 1 or tray 2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always---on three Fedora Core 6 systems.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup an HP LaserJet 1320tn using JetDirect socket and "PostScript
2. Click on "installable options."
3. Enable tray 2 and 3.
4. Click on "printer options."
5. Change "media source" to "tray 3."
6. Click "apply" button.
The media source changes to 1 or 2. (Only one of my three machines goes to tray 2.)
1. The selected option stays, or
2. There is a friendly error pop-up message explaining the change.
I can't reproduce this. Please supply the PPD you are using (from /etc/cups/ppd).
After I deleted and recreated the printer, I also could not reproduce the
problem. Perhaps creating the printer with the earlier version of the
system-config-printer software was the problem.

HP LaserJet 1320tn PPD (supplied by Fedora) from problematic system
Enable 'Tray 3' in Installable Options
Select 'Tray 3' for Media Source in Printer Options
Enable 'Tray 1 (Manual)' in Printer Options
This is happening because we set the ManualFeed ('Tray 1 (Manual)') option after
the InputSlot ('Media Source') option, and CUPS treats these options specially
(in the ppdMarkOption() function).
I think this might need special treatment in the UI.
Fixed in update: system-config-printer-0.7.49-1.fc6
