fix for emacs 22 in FC7's version of ps-print.el (239.27 KB, text/x-emacs-lisp)

no flags Details

Description Paul Johnson 2007-04-28 03:47:14 UTC
Description of problem: choosing postscript print in the file menu does nothing

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use postscript print
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

I learned that this is a known problem in the emacs email list and that a fixed
version of ps-print.el is available.  I'm attaching that copy, which I believe
is "6.7.3". After replacing ps-print.elc, then post script printing does work.
I'm very sorry, I lost the URL of the thread where I was reading about this, but
it was very recent--I believe late February 2007.

Comment 2 Paul Johnson 2007-04-28 04:04:30 UTC
I found the place where I learned about this fix.  


Also I forgot to mention that in the Emacs status bar, the error message I see
when I try to use ps print is "ps-mule-begin-job: Symbol's value as variable is
void: ps-lf-cache"

Comment 3 Chip Coldwell 2007-04-30 13:36:42 UTC
We're about to get emacs 22.1 (they've released pretest 22.0.99) and I think
it's likely that will include this fix.  When I release the updated package,
I'll verify that it does and if so close this bug.


Comment 4 Paul Johnson 2007-05-22 19:53:47 UTC
Please hurry with the update before FC7 is released.  Or apply the patch
suggested above. If Emacs does not print in a major distribution like Fedora, it
will be really bad. 

Comment 5 Chip Coldwell 2007-05-22 20:40:56 UTC
Eeek.  Well we were all preoccupied with bug 239344, which I think you'll agree
was more serious.  I'll try to get blocker status for this one, otherwise it
will have to slip until an update.


Comment 6 Chip Coldwell 2007-05-23 17:30:01 UTC
Good news; release engineering was receptive to my pleadings and have moved
emacs-22.0.990-2 into F-7.  This is based on the emacs-22.0.990 pretest tarball,
which has the fixed ps-print.el code.

I am closing the bug.
