Description Tim Waugh 2007-04-23 14:25:35 UTC
Description of problem:
The CUPS backend directory is: /usr/lib/cups/backend
It is *not*: %{_libdir}/cups/backend
Please install the CUPS backend in /usr/lib/cups/backend.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Background: by rights it ought to be /usr/libexec/cups/backend, however the
'libexec' directory is not in enough standards to satisfy the upstream CUPS
maintainer, so we use /usr/lib for consistency's sake to allow 3rd party

It looks like cups is still capable of printing using the bluetooth backend with
that problem, but it means that Bluetooth printer doesn't show up in
system-config-printer, or the HAL config interface.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2007-05-23 08:12:28 UTC
Really?  If it knows where the backend is, it knows where it is.  I patched
cupsd so that it looks in /usr/lib/cups first, and then /usr/lib64/cups if we
ever used that location before on that architecture, so it will *find* the
backend currently.  I won't keep that 'legacy location' patch around forever though.

I think perhaps the bluetooth backend isn't performing discovery.

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2007-05-23 08:39:22 UTC
I did "sudo cp /usr/lib64/cups/backend/bluetooth /usr/lib/cups/backend/" and it
showed up in the list afterwards.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2007-05-23 08:48:27 UTC
Hm, didn't realise that effect.  Then it's even more important to ship it in the
correct place..

Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2007-05-29 17:02:49 UTC
I've moved the backend in bluez-utils-3.11-1 in devel.
