Comment 1 Matt Anderson 2007-02-09 19:06:59 EST
Description of problem:
When using labeled printing a long enough label will continue off the edge of
the page, resulting in lost information.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a really long label name in /etc/selinux/mls/setrans.conf
2. Setup labeled printing in cups
3. Print something with the long label and see that its truncated.
Actual results:
The label is truncated at the begining and end.

Expected results:
According to our evaluators the label needs to line wrap.

Additional info:
I have a patch that I will submit once testing on it finishes.

cups-lspp patch with support for line wrapped labels

This patch includes changes to filter/common.c which will automatically line
wrap labels that are longer than the page.  The label font for LSPP labels is
switched to a fixed width font in order to perform the calculation, and when
the server is in LSPP mode the label now starts with "LSPP:" so that the filter
knows to handle line wrapping.

This patch also introduces a PerPageLabel config file option, which defaults to
yes.  When an admin sets it to no CUPS will not force a label on each page of
the output.

Lastly this patch adds handling for the lpr option page-label which can
normally be used to apply an additional label to the output, but now in LSPP
mode this option is no longer honored.	If a client attempts to use it the
option is dropped by cupsd.
