Description of Problem:
Currently, the only way to configure cups is via their web interface (or at
least it looks that way). It appears that RH 8.0 contains all of the needed
stuff to make full use of cups (all of the drivers and not just the minimal ones
that come with basic cups).
This is a request to support configuration of cups via the programs in the
Now the following may be a bug:
I switched to using cups from LPRng. I had a printer configured under LPRng.
When I configured cups via the web interface, I configured the printer more or
less the same way I had it under LPRng. I then wondered what would happen if I
tried to use redhat-config-printer to add a printer so I brought it up and added
a printer and did a "apply" to restart. It said OK, lpd restarted.
I then did lpq -Plp1 but cups said that this was not defined. /etc/printcap had
the definition but cups did not.
Currently redhat-config-printer should either support cups configuration or it
should say that it does not support cups configuration (and not just look like
everything is OK when it is not).
