Description of problem:
When running system-config-printer from an xterm and selecting "New
queue" from the action menu, the following is displayed in the xterm
No match for parallel port device:

Please report this message in Bugzilla:
Choose 'foomatic' as the component.
If I continue with the configuration and choose "Okidata" as the
manufacturer and "Okipage 6ex" as the model, the recommended "hpijs"
driver installs and works just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a system with a connected, but not yet configured, Okidata 6ex
printer, launch system-config-printer from a terminal window.
2. Click on the "New" icon, or select "New queue" from the action menu.
Actual Results: The above message is displayed in the terminal window.
Expected Results: No message.
The list of drivers includes "Okipage 6e/6ex" which does _NOT_ work
with this printer. The "Okipage 6ex" driver works if the printer is
set to "HP4" emulation.
