Description ritz 2009-07-01 01:48:58 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #246602 +++

Description of problem:

For cups 1.2 the default user specific queue options are written to
~/.cups/lpoptions. libgnomecups only checks the old ~/.lpoptions location.

This problem was also discovered & fixed in Ubuntu, bug #34112. The patch
attached is an extract from the one by Martin Pitt in that bug.

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


Additional info:
Note that libgnomecups doesn't even honor any lpoptions by default; for that the
patch in bug 157878 is needed.
