Description joachim 1999-11-02 13:31:49 UTC
if I want to start the configuration tool for the lpd, the
following output is produced:

[root@godzilla /root]# lpdconf
Dieses Programm kann nicht umbenannt werden.
Sein urspr|nglicher Name ist linuxconf.

And in the linuxconf-program there is no appearance of any
lpd-specific stuff. I remember in redhat 6.0 one could
configure a printer at install time, in 6.1 not.
It would be very nice to re-enable this feature and fix the
bug of "lpdconf".

linuxconf does not (yet?) support our printtool functionality.
Have you tried running printtool?

Comment 2 jack 1999-11-30 16:28:59 UTC
The symlink lpdconf -> linuxconf was a wish. I will remove this from the
packaging. There was also an old xconf -> linuxconf symlink. Another wish.
This one is funny because Linuxconf really started as an X configurator
back in 1994. It turned out differently and today, does not handle that
area at all.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-02 19:09:59 UTC
These will both be fixed in our next errata release from Red Hat,
as well.

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-15 21:01:59 UTC
