Description Lynn Kerby 2002-11-07 23:39:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i686)

Description of problem:
When configuring printers that use the uniprint (ghostscript) driver
settings, printtool crashes.  This is on an old (but mostly updated)
RedHat 6.2 installation.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install updated printtool rpm (printtool-3.44-2)
2. Install updated ghostscript rpm (ghostscript-6.51-16.1.6x.1)
3. configure an epson stylus color printer and hit OK
	

Actual Results:  No color depth/uniprint mode selection present when
configuring.  Clicking on OK results in a dialog box from Tcl/Tk.

Additional info:

The problem is due to the new location of printer 'upp' files in the
ghostscript_6.51 package.  Changing the path of upp files on line
1429 of /usr/bin/printtool from /usr/share/ghostscript/*/$fname to
/usr/share/ghostscript/*/lib/$fname seems to resolve the problem.

The suggested work-around sounds like the right fix.  Thanks.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
