Description Colin Coles 2010-04-28 17:31:29 UTC
Description of problem:
In Konqueror (and most other kde applications) the printer settings previous selections are not automatically remembered next time printer dialogue is used nor is there a method to save the settings. This is both: time consuming when multiple pages with same settings requirements are printed and; a step backwards from the modus operandi of kde 3. It is an old bug present in Fedora 9 and later, just hoping reporting it here may make a difference.

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

Konqueror Version 4.3.4 (KDE 4.3.4)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Using Konqueror Browser
2.File => Print
3.Options => HTML Settings
4.Uncheck Print Images
5.Click Print
6.Then Repeat 2 and 3
Actual results:

Print Images Checked

Expected results:

Print Images Unchecked

Additional info:
This bug has been reported both to KDE and QT in the past. It'll be interesting to see if anything is done now it's in RHEL6

review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for

Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2010-10-07 16:02:32 UTC
Well, in Fedora, and AFAIK RHEL6 inherits the relevant patches from Fedora, the Qt/KDE print dialog should at least be honoring the settings you set as defaults in CUPS, thanks to this Qt patch:
(The patch comes from the KDE bug report and handles Duplex, Color/Grayscale and Collate.)
But it still won't remember previous settings in the dialog itself.

-- Kevin Kofler, comaintainer of Qt and KDE in Fedora

Comment 8 Kevin Kofler 2010-10-07 16:15:35 UTC
Linking the Fedora bug (bug 480954) as well.

Comment 9 Kevin Kofler 2010-10-07 16:18:41 UTC
AFAIK, RHEL6 also carries this backported patch:
from upstream Nokia which is included in 4.6.3 and newer releases of Qt.

This patch makes the Qt/KDE print dialog default to the paper size set in the CUPS settings. See Fedora bug 523846.

Comment 10 Kevin Kofler 2010-10-07 16:19:31 UTC
Oops, I meant to link the KDE bug, too, but somehow it got forgotten.

Comment 11 Kevin Kofler 2010-10-07 16:21:17 UTC
(Well, it's just getting ignored. Does Bugzilla not accept upstream bug references on RHEL bugs? Sorry for the bugspam.)

Comment 12 RHEL Program Management 2011-01-07 15:32:51 UTC
