Configuring raw queue does not work
Last modified: 2009-08-10 08:15:40 EDT
Description of problem:
when setting up a new printer, selecting Generic > Raw Queue does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
a printer driver is assigned.
no printer driver should be assigned
setting up a raw queue via CUPS web interface works ok.
Works for me. Please explain in more detail what things you click and what you see.
after some playing around, its not a bug, just a very unintuitive setup process.
I am trying to set up 2 queues for 1 printer.
The system discovers the printer automatically and assigns its preferred driver. Very nice and fair enough.
When it comes to adding a second (raw) queue however, the port that the printer is connected to is not displayed in the "Select Device" dialog.
I got around this by selecting "Other" and putting the device URI into the dialog, and assigning a raw print queue.
Perhaps this needs to be reworked a little.
I need two queues, one raw, for windoze boxen to connect using ipp, and the other with the native print driver for linux apps.
I still can't reproduce this problem. Is the printer switched on when you go to create a new queue? How is it connected, USB? What does '/usr/sbin/lpinfo -v' say at that point?
(by the way, run 'lpinfo -v' as root...)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Closing due to lack of information.
