I have upgraded cups and redhat-config-printer from rawhide and set my
printer spool with it. I went to print with gedit and evolution but
hp2250 is ready
/etc/printcap shows only
should their be more stuff here? Also, /var/spool/lpd is empty and
/var/spool/cups has tmp which is empty also. I am printing to a remote (LPD)
This is my first time using cups, rh8 had LPRng which worked.
Did the test page from redhat-config-printer work?
Yes, I'm able to print a test page. So I now think this is a
gnome-print/libgnomeprint bug. I will wait for the next beta to come out before
making anymore comments.
What gnome-print version do you have?
Can not print from evolution or gedit
Please try printing to file and doing 'lpr file'. Or view the file with ghostview.
Yes, I'm able to print to a file from both evolution and gedit. I can view both
outputs with ggv. I can print them by doing 'lpr file'. So somehow gnome-print
is not sending the job to the print spool.
Hmmm, so far in testing I get very different results from
evolution/gnome-print-0.37 and gedit/libgnomeprint22
gnome-print: output disappears without a trace
libgnomeprint22: get a huge (20+ meg) output file queued up, that
takes a long time to print (haven't tried waiting for the output)
For the evolution case, it turned out to be misconfiguration my
test machine; after fixing that, printing from evolution worked fine.
So, I'm not sure what to say there.
After installing phoebe2 I'm able to print from evolution and gedit. Their is a
font problem printing from gedit. The font is not the same as in gedit. I'm
working on a stock phoebe2 with no rawhide packaged.
That's a separate bug (which has already been filed).
