Description of problem:
If 'CUPS Printer Configuration' is started from the gnome menu and cups is not
running an error is displayed. In this error users are told to switch off LPRng
with 'service LPRng stop'. This should say 'service lpd stop'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Gnome Menu, Programs, System, CUPS Printer Configuration ('service cups stop'
before if cups is running of course)
2. dialog pops up
3. service LPRng status
Actual Results: LPRng: unrecognized service
# rpm -qf /etc/init.d/lpd
Expected Results: the dialog should say:
"/sbin/service lpd stop"
Actually, they can't both be configured to run at the same time without manual
intervention, so even the advice to turn off lpd isn't *that* helpful.
Running both simultaneously is a bad idea because they'll mess up each other's
I've changed the text of the error message in -15.
