Description of problem:
I have a NEC SuperScript 1400 (PCL4 compatible) hooked up to LPT1. When I
try to set it up with printconf-gui I cannot see a list of drivers. Also
when I try the console version (printconf-t(something))after entering port
data the script bombs out.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start printconf-gui
2. Enter new printer, enter name and port.
3. No choice for any drivers
1. Start princonf-txx in console
2. Enter net printer, entern name and port.
3. Script dies.
Actual Results: No choice of printer drivers and the console version dies.
Expected Results: List of drivers to choose from.
We (Red Hat) should try to fix this for the next release.
first, am I missing something? Is 'tui' obscene somewhere? text-user-interface?
Second, what version of printconf are you running? Do a
rpm -qi printconf
for me, please.
In addition, I do not seem to have any data on the printer model you listed. Is
this what you mean by "no drivers?"
And, lastly, could you run
from the console, and cause that crash. And then attach the traceback
information to the bug, please?
It looks like my bug report
and the current version in rawhide seems to work better
I'm inclined to think this is resolved.
