Description of problem:
There's a problem with the latest version of printconf.
After having installed all the latest updates, the printconf tool doesn't create
printing queues nor /etc/printcap file.
The only thing that works is creating a RAW queue.
It really is a printconf problem since editing /etc/printcap by hand or
configuring a printer with printtool works.
Here's a listing of some rpms installed on my system:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade all packages with up2date or any other tool
2. Launch printconf (gui or tui)
3. Create a new entry with any driver
Actual Results: No error message, the entry is not created in /var/spool/pld
and the /etc/printcap is not updated (and sometimes it even delete all the other
Expected Results: New printer queue created
Do you have mpage installed, and if not does installing it fix the problem?
With mpage installed, it does work !
I think it should be added to the printconf rpm depency.
Thank you, at last my problem's solve...
