changing default printer doesn't take
Last modified: 2008-01-10 07:31:00 EST
Description of problem:
I've had a Dell 1600 MFC as my default printer, as an lpd printer over my home
network. It's now gone. On the s-c-p page I've unchecked Enabled, Accepting jobs
and Shared. That page says "Default printer is Brother-8640-MFC".
The 8640 also uses an LPD over as a URI. It's s-c-p page says "This is the
default printer" All three boxes are checked.
The cups web interface shows the 8640 as the default printer. I can print to the
8640 just fine.
BUT...the Dell-1600 keeps showing up as the default printer in the print dialog
boxes - firefox, gedit, oowriter, evince. I can change it to the 8640.
I've restarted cups, I've rebooted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Moving to 'devel' as discussed on
s-c-printer changes the server default, but it seems you've set a client
default. What does 'cat ~/.cups/lpoptions' say? Otherwise, what does 'cat
~/.cups/lpoptions doesn't exist.
cat /etc/cups/lpoptions | grep fault
Default Dell-MFC-1600n kde-margin-bottom=0 kde-margin-left=0 kde-margin-right=0
Changed Default to Dest. That fixed it.
What sets lpoptions?
The 'my-default-printer' application does.
