Description Tim Waugh 2001-02-05 20:26:19 UTC
When printing from gimp using the gimp-print Epson Stylus Colour 760 output
filter to a print queue configured for that printer, the job fails
silently.  lpq showed nothing out of the ordinary.

After hunting around I found that one of the status file had something like
'cannot print data files' in.

When I changed the print queue to RAW it works.  It _used_ to (Guinness)
work fine when I printed raw to a non-raw queue; it used to get passed
straight through.  I don't mind so much that it doesn't now, but it
shouldn't just fail silently IMHO.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1

Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-06 16:27:44 UTC
Okay, I'm not propagating an error code backwards properly, or something
similar. I'll do some checks on this today.

Comment 3 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-06 22:00:19 UTC
I am droping some error codes, but magicfilter doesn't always wait on its
children to get its exit status, so I'll have fix magicfilter to fix this.
