Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458565
avahi-tools rpm should be installed by default
Last modified: 2008-10-15 22:08:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently the printer setup utility in Fedora 9 can't access Bonjour printers when a standard installation of Fedora 9 is used because the avahi-tools package is not installed (despite the avahi package being installed).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1: Install Fedora 9 and open the mDNS port in the Firewall.
2. Printing utility from the Admistrative submenu in the System menu of the Gmone Desktop.
3.Click on the NewPrinter button.
The local Bonjour printers are not found.
I expected the local Bonjour printers to be found by the New Printer action.
The reason why the Bonjour printers aren't found is that the avahi-browse command is not available from the avahi-tools package. This package should be installed along side avahi (which is already installed by default).
I guess the cupps packages need to be fixed to include a dependency on avahi-tools then. Reassigning.
cups-1.3.9-1.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
cups-1.3.9-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
