Description of problem:
When I set a default printer using gnome-default-printer, the printer seems to be set as default but when lauching gnome-default-printer again, the default printer is not selected. I get this behaviour when I am logged on as simple user not as root.
Using strace, I see we store informations in ~/.cups/lpoptions when I am logged on as simple user. And the informations are stored in /etc/cups/lpotions when I am logged on as root.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.log on as simple user
2.launch gnome-default-printer
3.select a printer to set as default
4.launch gnome-default-printer again

Actual Results:
the default printer hasn't changed

Expected Results:
the default printer selected must be the one I have previously selected

Additional info:

The default printer has actually changed for that user, it's just that the
application does not display that correctly and shows the system default instead
of the user default.

I think it also needs a 'Use System Default' button.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2007-07-20 10:18:15 EDT
The system-config-printer implementation provides this button now.
