Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446177
Printer (Canon iR2020i) only prints one copy when asked to print more
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
With not-so-well supported printers (like my networked Canon iR2020i):
The printing dialog presents an option to print more than one copy. In some
cases, the printer simply ignores the setting and prints just one copy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 9 (rawhide).
2. Install a "generic" printer (with no specific drivers available), like the
Canon iR2020i via network.
3. Open a printable Web page in Firefox
4. Print the webpage, requesting more tan one copy.
In some cases (but very frequent) printer ignores the request and only prints
Printer should print the requested number of copies.
Please see other details at bug #445610
Unable to reproduce that here. I'd like you to try to catch some debugging
information about this. First, enable preservation of print job files like this:
/usr/sbin/cupsctl -U root PreserveJobFiles=Yes
Next, start the troubleshooter (System->Administration->Printing, then select
Help->Troubleshoot) and follow the instructions. When it asks you to print a
test page, do so from Firefox (obviously, set the number of copies as you do
this), and the print job will show in the list in the troubleshooter window.
Keep doing this until the bug appears, and mark that job with a tick by clicking
in the checkbox and select 'No' for "Did the test work?". Then click Next and
carry on following the instructions.
You will most likely end up with a troubleshoot.txt file saved in your home
directory. Please attach that here.
I've tried to do this, but when I try to print from Firefox, I'm blocked by bug
So I cannot print the test pages from Firefox.
Well, how did you ever see this only-one-copy bug in the first place? You say
in comment #0, "Reproducible: Always".
Can you reproduce this bug at all?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
