Failed to print document: Too many failed attempts
Last modified: 2008-05-20 11:04:53 EDT
Since upgrading to Fedora 8, printing from GNOME applications only ever gives me
a dialog box saying 'Failed to print document' 'Too many failed attempts'. I'm
given no indication of _what_ has actually failed, and printing works fine if I
print to a file and then use lpr.
gnome-libs is the Gnome-1 legacy library; for the vast majority of Fedora 8
Gnome apps, you'll be using libgnome or one of its current companion libraries
(I'm not sure which one myself), and should report the bug against those.
Or maybe against gtk2, which is where libprintbackend-cups comes from.

Probably due to 'Content-Length: 0'?
could you post the version of the installed gtk2 here? And could you also post
architecture (ppc vs. i386, 32bit vs. 64bit)?
Is the problem still present with recent updates?
Not sure about F8+updates, but this no longer seems to be happening in Fedora 9.
It was on ppc (64-bit machine, but 32-bit userspace).
this looks exactly the same as upstream bug #485662
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=485662) which was fixed in version
Original version was 2.12.1-5 in F8. Actual version is 2.12.8-2.
Actual version in F9 is 2.12.9-5.
So, I'm closing this bug with resolution CURRENTRELEASE.
Thank you for reporting this bug
