Description Tim Waugh 2007-07-04 15:04:29 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #139266 +++

From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
For the first time with FC3, I plugged in my printer by USB. After
about half a minute the Specify Printer Driver window popped up
(confusingly long delay). I selected the driver, and pressed OK.
top(1) showed some foomatic process running for a while, after which
nothing happened. This may be how it is intended to work, but a user
would assume _something_ visible to happen after clicking OK in the
Specify Printer Driver window. Probably have it show the
system-config-printer app. If not, the Specify Printer Dialog should
tell so, and tell why the it asked about the driver in the first place.

So I ran system-config-printer, where there was a presumably new entry
stylus-photo-790-1. I selected Edit from context menu of that entry,
and got on stdout:

No match for USB device:
  mfr "EPSON"
  model "Stylus Photo 790"
  desc "EPSON Stylus Photo 790"
  cmdset "ESCPL2,BDC,D4"
Please report this message in Bugzilla:
Choose 'foomatic' as the component.

Otherwise, printing works fine however.

Except CUPS test page entry should mention it's Letter format.
