Description of problem:
when I try to run the printer daemon using: service lpd start , the initscript
return an error about an undefined name. the redhat-config-printer also fails to
run the daemon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login as root
2.service lpd start
Actual Results: [root@localhost log]# service lpd start
Starting lpd: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/printconf-backend", line 7, in ?
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py", line 30, in ?
NameError: name 'gettext' is not defined
Expected Results: lpd starts
I can confirm this. I had the exact same error msg when starting my Red Hat
(null) the first time after installation. Every time after that I got the same
error msg as well. I instead removed LPRng and installed cups.
This is already fixed in redhat-config-printer-0.4.22-1.
