Description Paolo Leoni 2008-11-13 11:56:43 EST
Description of problem:

When I try to do a scheduled printing with system-config-printer on a fixed time (like HH:MM), it don't work. This happens because the time value is read by the software like "UTC" and not like "local system time".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document to print
2. select "Print on:" and type your local time
Actual results:

No printing (suspended)

Expected results:

Printing on typed time

Additional info:
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2008-11-14 07:33:25 EST
When the job-hold-until attribute is set to XX:YY that must be interpreted as UTC.  This is documented in the CUPS help:

From your "steps to reproduce" it seems that system-config-printer is not involved here.  Perhaps it is the GTK+ print dialog are you seeing, with this sort of thing:

Print Document
 ( ) Now
 (O) At: [______]
 ( ) On hold

In this case, the GTK+ print dialog ought to make this clearer, either by changing the string to "At (UTC):" or by adding a tooltip to that text entry box.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2008-11-14 10:06:12 EST
For the gtk side of things, we probably want to take a local time there, and need to translate to utc in the cups backend then.
Comment 3 Marek Kašík 2008-11-21 03:29:11 EST
I added a conversion from the local time (user) to UTC (CUPS) to the CUPS backend (gtk2-2.12.12-2.fc9 version).

Thanks to all for your help.

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:14:59 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-07-15 04:21:43 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
