system-config-printer doesn't allow me to use "Optional Tray 3"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
system-config-printer doesn't allow choosing "Installable Options" of optional
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add new printer, choose HP LaserJet 4240 PostScript Driver
2.After printer is added, attempt to tell s-c-p that you have "Optional Tray 3"
3.Checkbox stays checked only until after you hit the "Apply" button. Then its
I've tried HP LaserJet 4240 and 4250 drivers. Only the ones marked "Postscript"
even give me the option for "Optional Tray 3" which has the super-special blue
paper that we want to use for this print queue.
I've tried removing the printer, restarting cups, etc. System-config-printer
will still not allow me to turn on the optional tray 3. I want to use that as
the default tray for this print queue, but I cannot unless I have it installed.
But it won't let me tell it that it is actually installed.
If it matters, the printer is setup using LPD protocol. (I entered the
ipaddress and use queue RAW).
Tested with F7-rc2 using system-config-printer version 0.7.63.1-1.fc7 and it has
the exact same behavior. Am I doing something wrong?
The problem lies with the PPD. It is advertising those Tray options as on/off
values, but in fact they are off/500/1000-sheets options.
I'll put in some code to work around this.
