Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 46027
wrong parsing of /etc/printcap
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:50 EDT
Description of Problem:
No matter what I try kde applications are incorrectly parsing the printcap
file thus not being able to print. lpr printing works perfectly. I tried many
different variations of defining a printer, for example:
gives lp0::sd as the printer name,
gives lp0:sd as the printer name, I tried many other variations that all
work with lpr but in kde the next item after lp0 is taken as part of the
name. If one put |HP Postscript Printer| kind of comments after lp0 it
does skip these and still bind with the next definition.
Any suggestion would be appreciated....also at some point printing used
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.
Closing as "CURRENTRELEASE" for now.
