Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 474814
Cannot override CUPS' auto-typing for compressed files
Last modified: 2010-10-23 02:23:19 EDT
CUPS is re-based on 1.3.7 as I saw. Our CUPS server is RHEL 5.2 and most (if
not all) clients are RHEL 4.4+ .
The clients print Hebrew iso-8859-9 encoded and compressed (gzipped) text files
by way similar to this:
LANG=he_IL lp -h pserver -p printer1 iso-8859-8.txt.gz
This will fail with CUPS 1.3.7, and to have this:
lp -h pserver -p printer1 -ocomression=gzip
work the patch for STR #2997 needs to be applied.
(my original patch, as upstream later agreed:
