UI regressions in new eggcups
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:00 EST
The new eggcups may be better in the cups communication, but there are
several unfortunate regressions in the UI:
- no way to hide the icon (old eggcups had a context menu for that purpose)
- File -> Close Window does not work
- Window comes up ridiculously wide. Please ellipsize the "Document" column
and give it a reasonable width
- useless statusbar, just remove it
- no way to clear the list
- no window icon set
File->Close was fixed in CVS.
Yes, needs ellipsizing.
Okay, will remove.
How do you mean 'clear the list'? You mean cancel all jobs?
I can set a window icon (I didn't think the old eggcups did actually).
With "Clear" I mean "Remove the completed jobs from the list". As things
currently stand, the list is ever-growing, no ?
No, the list is not ever-growing, in the same way that 'lpstat -o' is not
ever-growing. Completed jobs may be viewed by toggling 'View->Show completed jobs'.
Please try system-config-printer-0.7.59-1.fc7.
At what point is a completed job dropped from the list ?
When it is completed.
No, when it is completed, it gets hidden. It stays on the list, as "Show
completed" proves. I meant drop for good.
It just depends how you've configured CUPS. The default is for it to preserve
job history (but not job files). Try 'lpstat -Wall -o'.
This is all CUPS policy.
