Description John Ellson 2008-03-31 14:46:58 UTC
Description of problem:
We have 100+ printers on our lan at work.  It is really difficult to find a
particular printer in the panel menu because the list is unsorted, and
unsortable by the user.

Its not obvious to me where this menu item comes from, so reporting against
gnome-panel. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-panel-2.20.3-1.fc8.x86_64
system-config-printer-0.7.74.10-3.fc8.x86_64

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.menu: system->preferences->hardware->default_printer
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
unsorted list of printers

Expected results:
Simply presort by printer name, or add ability for user to sort by clicking on
"Printer" or "Location" tags.
