Description Opher Shachar 2008-12-05 08:56:08 EST
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
-odocument-format=text/plain;charset=iso-8859-8 iso-8859-8.txt.gz

work the patch for STR #2997 needs to be applied.
(my original patch, as upstream later agreed:

Kind regards,
