Description of problem:
With the version of LPRng distributed with RH7.3, the last printed job comes up
in the "lpq" output in the "done" state. This confuses samba, which interprets
these jobs as "paused" as a fallback.
This means that windows clients never realise that their print jobs are done
(until the next person submits a job). I wrote a simple patch to address this
problem (make samba interpret these jobs as "printed"), which is going into
Samba 2.2.6, but you may wish to include it in an errata:
This resulted in many less problem reports from users :)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up a print queue with the LPRng printer config program
2.print a document to that print queue from a Windows machine
3.look in the print queue window on the Windows machine
Actual Results: The print job is marked as "Paused", and the printer icon does
not disapear from the system tray on the windows machine (which is used as
notification of the print job completing).
Expected Results: print job should disapear or change to "printed" state.
Added to samba 2.2.5-6 - thanks.
