Description Tim Waugh 2007-07-04 15:04:01 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #143964 +++

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

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:
  model "OKIDATA OKIPAGE 6ex"
  desc "OKIDATA OKIPAGE 6ex (HP4P)"
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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.
