Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem:
After updating to "cups-1.3.4" Samba cannot print. Downgrading to "cups-1.3.3"
solves the problem.
With the updated version "cups-1.3.4" lpc status also dont work anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lpc status
2. printing from samba
This works for me. Please attach your /etc/sysconfig/i18n file.

Here the content of my /etc/sysconfig/i18n file:
Are you running 'lpc status' from the same machine as the CUPS server or from a
different one? Is the samba server running on the same machine as the CUPS
server or a different one?
Yes, i am running all 'lpc status' and the samba server on the same machine as cups.
I've tried to change my file /etc/sysconfig/i18n to the defaults of fedora 8 for
german language (generated by system-config-language):
Now cups-1.3.4 is working ok with 'lpc status' and samba server. I think, that
the new cups version can only work with UTF-8.
But with locale LANG="de_DE.UTF-8" many (nearly most) programs do a terrible
work with german "Umlaute" on the console. I think they are not UTF-8 ready.
Is it possible to run cups without UTF-8 in any way?
Okay, I think in the short term we'll have to re-enable non-UTF-8 request
handling in cupsd. Longer term we need to get samba, KDE etc to convert
response strings from UTF-8 to the current locale encoding.
