I'm not sure what you mean by 'alternatives'.  Driver options?  Aliases?  Please
be more specific about which buttons you press in what order.  Thanks.
Comment 2 Inger Karin Haarbye 2002-03-14 10:27:56 EST
'driver alternatives' was the translation of the norvegian text, but using US
language, I can see 'driver options' is used.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-03-14 10:36:53 EST
Are you starting printconf-gui from the command line?  Is there any output when
it crashes?
Comment 4 Inger Karin Haarbye 2002-03-14 10:47:25 EST
Yes I start printconf-gui from command-line (it does not work else - at least not for user).
The printconf-gui does not crash, only the "edit" box. No output.

Yes, I believe that to be a usermode bug.

I haven't managed to reproduce this yet.  What version of foomatic do you have?

If you upgrade printconf and printconf-gui to the current rawhide versions
(0.3.73-1), does the problem go away? (Probably not..)

> I haven't managed to reproduce this yet.  What version of foomatic do you have?

foomatic-1.1-0.20020130.9

I can only reproduce this with the gimp-print driver (epson stylus color 880).
If I use a different driver, stc740ih.upp, I can edit the driver options.
I can remember a similar bug I have reported in earlier versions, #52998, but 
I don't get any output now.

Same result.

I'm pretty sure this is fixed in the current release.
