adding smb printer
Description of problem:
Adding samba printer doesn't work when adding the printer via gnome-control-center. I have tried to put there "printserver.domain", the IP address and also the full URI "smb://server.domain/printer". In all cases I can see in wireshark that the backend is trying to contact the server using the IPP and SNMP protocols, but not SMB protocol.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to gnome
2. run gnome-control-centre / Printers
3. try to add samba (windows) network printer
Nothing happens, Add button is greyed out all the time, it is not possible to add printer.
It is expected that:
- add button will be enabled
- printer network availability will be checked ower smb protocol
- new printer will be added
As workaround it is still possible to use system-config-printer to add the printer.
I have the same issue.
This is a good UI but it's useless at the moment without a correct SystemD integration.
SystemD on Fedora 17 is loaded and running by default.
I plan to add support for samba printers in control-center-3.6.
Is this now supported in Gnome 3.6? I couldn't add a samba printer through control-center in F18.
unfortunately no. I didn't make it before 3.6 was released. I'm working on this right now and I think that I can say that the patch will be ready for 3.8.
I'd be happy to test any patches.
Thank you :)
Moved the release of Fedora 18 as this issue is still present in the F18 release.
Cross referencing the fedora forums:
I've committed support for adding of samba printers to gnome-control-center's upstream. It will be available in next release (3.8).
See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=683229 for additional information.
This a great news Marek, thank you very much for your work!
