Description Owen Taylor 2003-01-20 12:58:57 EST
If you change a printer configuration through the http admin
interface for CUPS, they don't show up in redhat-config-printer.

A minimal step would probably to just detect that this occurred
and put up a warning dialog.

This is generally hard to figure out.  Some experimental code is in
/usr/share/printconf/util/cups_import.py though.  Try running that and see if it
gives any good results.

What changes did you make?  Changes to a redhat-config-printer-managed print
queue will get overwritten (don't do that); new queues should be unaffected (but
the cups_import code could try to propagate it back).
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2003-01-21 06:52:24 EST
(Incidentally, this will all get much better once we drop alchemist.)
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-01-21 11:05:26 EST
What I did was to change a redhat-config-printer managed queue. Can
we manage to somehow display in the CUPS admin interface 
"this queue was created by redhat-config-printer, editing is not
recommended." or something?
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2003-01-22 08:41:23 EST
How about if we put that in the 'description' field?  Currently it just says
'Created by redhat-config-printer 0.6.x', but it can be changed.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2003-01-22 09:25:54 EST
Please take a look at cups-1.1.17-8, which has (I think) a neat way of doing this.
