Description Mate Wierdl 2002-09-20 18:11:25 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
After updating my system, and trying to  start lpd, I get a message about an
error in /usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Configure a new printer (I selected PostScript)


service lpd start


Actual Results:   service lpd start
Starting lpd: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/printconf-backend", line 7, in ?
    import printconf_backend
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py", line 30, in ?
NameError: name 'gettext' is not defined
No Printers Defined                                        [  OK  ]

Expected Results:  lpd starts

Additional info:

I can start lpd manually with 

# . /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions
# daemon /usr/sbin/lpd

and seems to be working fine. So perhaps the error is in the
printconf_backend.py only.

Commenting out the line


in /usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py seems to fix the problem

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-09-20 22:04:45 UTC
This has been fixed since redhat-config-printer-0.4.22-1, in rawhide.
