Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 81047
Should offer to run redhat-config-printer-gui when no printers found

On new install, you have the printman icon sitting there. You
double click on it, you get an error message, you have to go
to the menus to find out where to configure your printer
Making the dialog be along the lines of:
No printers found. Run the printer configuration
[ Cancel ] [ COnfigure ]
Would be a very nice.
Fixed package is 0.0.1-0.20021202.9. Needs translating though; how do I get
Not really sure what to suggest about translation; not clear to me how
we are handling that for GNOME local change this time around for translation.
Two other comments:
- The packing of the dialog buttons is rather odd - there is no space
between them. How are you creating the dialog?
- is there any way we can get printman to refresh the list of printers
after redhat-config-printer-gui is done? It's cool that it runs
the tool, but then lame when the new printer isn't listed there.
Translation is done by putting your source on elvis CVS server, and notifying
redhat-i18n-list, usually. pgampe is the guy to ask for details.
I'm creating the dialog with gnome_ok_cancel_dialog_modal_parented. Is that the
wrong thing to use?
0.0.1-0.20021202.10 reloads the print queues after running the config tool.
You want gtk_message_dialog_new():
gnome_dialog_* is legacy stuff.
Okay, fixed in CVS.
Today, I attempted to change the printer properties while it was printing. The
Printer Configuration Tool returned the message:"Media tray empty!". Not only is
this incorrect, it is also misleading (e.g. in the case of a remote printer on a
I would suggest that the message should be changed to "printer IN USE".
Please don't bundle different issues into the same bug report; it means they
can't be tracked properly. Instead, open a separate report for the issue you've
seen please. Many thanks.
... my apologies ... I guess I was being lazy!: it is now posted as Bug#85797
