Description Markku Kolkka 2002-07-16 17:06:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020625

Description of problem:
When I was adding my printer to CUPS using the WWW interface, the driver
selection screen showed several lines of duplicated identical entries for each

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run "CUPS Printer Configuration" from Control Panel
2.Choose "Add Printer"
3.Pick "EPSON" as make of printer

Actual Results:  You get a bunch of apparently identical driver entries and you
have to guess which to choose

Expected Results:  One entry for one driver, or some explanation if the entries
are actually somehow different.

Additional info:

See attached screenshot.

From gimp-print README

This package normally builds translated versions of the PPD
    files.  This provides PPD files translated into the languages that
    this package supports.  However, the translation process does not
    work correctly on all systems; in particular, many BSD systems are
    known to simply build multiple copies of the English PPD files.
    If your system does not build these files correctly, which will be
    apparent when you use a CUPS front end to select a PPD file and
    you see something like this:
            EPSON Stylus Photo EX, CUPS+GIMP-print v4.2.1(en)
            EPSON Stylus Photo EX, CUPS+GIMP-print v4.2.1(en)
            EPSON Stylus Photo EX, CUPS+GIMP-print v4.2.1(en)

The current development version of redhat-config-printer handles CUPS, and does
not suffer from this problem.
