Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52821
printconf does not work with SMB printer
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
Created an SMB printer with printconf-gui and attempted to print test
pages. lpstat showed that the prints failed. The configuration
information is correct (it works on a 6.2 system that uses printtool).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
printconf 0.2.12-1 and printconf-gui 0.2.12-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use printconf-gui to configure an SMB postscript printer.
2. Print a test page
The page never printed, and lpstat showed that the printjob was removed
due to an error.
Test page should have printed.
The workaround to this is to unistall the printconf and printconf-gui
rpms, and download and install printtool-3.54-1 and
rhs-printfilters-1.81-1 rpms. When you bring up printtool you will have
to delete the current entries, recreate them and restart lpd, but then
printing will work.
Are you still having this problem now? It might be because of bug #43905.
printconf works properly as of 7.2. My configuration did use forward slashes
as indicated in #43905, but since I upgraded to 7.2 my configuration works
Okay, thanks for getting back to me. Marking as fixed in the current release.
