Description Andy Burns 2007-03-28 16:40:18 EDT
Description of problem:

Installed F7 (rawhide from approx t3 freeze)
configured printing to Epson Stylus Photo R300
printed test page OK

I originally had extras repos disabled, upon re-enabling them I noticed
gutenprint was set to replace gimp-print, so I allowed it to do so, following
this the existing printer stopped working, I tried deleting and re-adding the
printer, it failed with a message about missing driver, ijsgimpprint, I note
instead that the program ijsgutenprint.5.0 exists instead.

Name   : gutenprint
Arch   : x86_64
Version: 5.0.0.99.1
Release: 2.fc7
Comment 1 Andy Burns 2007-03-28 17:00:58 EDT
I notice that gutenprint-cups wasn't installed, so installed it, and installed it.

I then ran

# cups-genppdupdate.5.0
No Gutenprint PPD files to update.

# cups-genppdconfig.5.0
About to call stp_init
Called stp_init
About to call stp_init
Called stp_init
dialog(1) is not available, but is required for interactive use. at
/usr/sbin/cups-genppdconfig.5.0 line 74.

# cups-genppd

Running system-config-printer, I did notice there were "many" drivers listed for
my Epson R300, choosing the en_GB one, made it crash though

"/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertogutenprint.5.0: found
/usr/lib/cups/filter/commandtoepson: found
python: Objects/dictobject.c:603: PyDict_SetItem: Assertion `value' failed.
Aborted"

Did you provide a PPD, or select a make/model from the list?

Please don't run random updater things -- I want to diagnose the problem before
anything gets mucked about with!

As for the s-c-printer crash, please file that as a separate bug report.  FWIW I
couldn't reproduce it.

selected manufacturer/model from list

I'm re-installing rawhide fairly regularly, so can always get a clean install to
test with, just waned to quickly see if any of them helped.

I think this is because we were shipping the gimp-print-4.2.7 XML data in
foomatic still.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2007-03-30 07:42:11 EDT
Should be fixed in foomatic-3.0.2-46.fc7.
