Description of problem:
I think that there is a problem with the package management.
After checking package status I am presented with a screen that shows the
packages that have been installed.
The printing support section is unticked and indicates that there are [0/10]
However I know that I have installed cups.
If I now decide to remove cups and all of the extra packages in this section. I
tick printing support and then click on details. I am now presented with all
extra packages ticked to allow me to install them. I carefully untick these
packages and then choose close.
When I update the add remove packages section the system preparation indicates
that 2 packages are queued for installation and 7 for removal. Show details
reveals that LPRng is to be installed and so is redhat config-printer the 7 to
be removed are appropriate.
I did not want to install LPRng or redhat config-printer.
It looks as though I have to resort to the command line to install and remove
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use system settings packages
2.select printer support
3.try to install only cups
Actual Results: it installs LPRng every time
Expected Results: It should not have installed LPRng
I had to use rpm on the command line to remove LPRng
Printing support is required for X, and printing support defaults to the
inclusion of LPRng
