Description Joseph Fannin 2001-09-21 14:46:47 EDT
Description of Problem:

    When starting lpd, printconf-backend crashes with a python backtrace
and no printers are available.  Starting printconf-gui produces the same

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


How Reproducible:

    Start lpd or printconf-gui...  I have (had?) two printers defined
before upgrading to the most recent rawhide push (as of 9/21) via apt-rpm.
  (*All* packages on this system have been upgraded to the rawhide
version.)  The two printers are a postscript printer on lp0 and a Deskjet
882 (don't recall which driver) on usb/lp0.

Additional Information:

    Python backtrace follows:

Starting lpd: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/printconf-backend", line 7, in ?
    import printconf_backend
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py", line 28, in ?
    from printconf_conf import *
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_conf.py", line 81, in ?
    from xml.utils import qp_xml
ImportError: No module named utils
No Printers Defined                                        [  OK  ]

That package version in the body should be 0.3.46-1, my mistake.

Bahhh... this is a dup, I'm sorry for the spam.
