Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 57362
default handler for application/postscript is lpr
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:24:41 EDT
Description of problem:
The default /etc/mailcap installed with RedHat 7.2 (and 6.2) has:
application/postscript ; lpr %s \; \
echo SENT FILE TO PRINTER ; \
description="A Postscript File"; \
compose="getfilename Postscript %s"
This is a very poor default since
1) Printing is often not set up correctly
2) People usually want to _see_ the file before printing it
Having gv or ghostview as the default application would make a lot more sense.
Fixed in 2.1.9-1.
