Description Chris Ricker 2003-01-28 06:24:14 UTC
cups has support for the IPP printing protocol, which I've been using on older
versions of RHL with the following /etc/cups/printers.conf configuration file:

[root@winsucks root]# more printers.conf 
# Printer configuration file for CUPS v1.1.15
# Written by cupsd on Thu 10 Oct 2002 05:57:21 PM GMT
<DefaultPrinter phaser860>
Info phaser860
DeviceURI http://phaser860.example.com:80/ipp/
State Idle
Accepting Yes
JobSheets none none
QuotaPeriod 0

[root@winsucks root]# 

When I try this on beta4 (either fresh install or upgrade from 8.0), I get:

Can't understand DeviceURI: http://phaser860.example.com:80/ipp/

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-01-28 09:49:59 UTC
This is coming from redhat-config-printer, which doesn't have support for this
type of URI yet.  The queue will still work, however; you'll just have to manage
it from the browser interface rather than the configuration tool.

The IPP screen on the config tool needs a 'specify URL' bit I guess.

Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-01-28 14:20:34 UTC
Okay. Then I guess the most pressing problem is that I have a valid cups
configuration, yet every time I start cups, redhat-config-printer is spewing
errors on the screen (ie, even if r-c-printer isn't immediately extended to
support IPP configuration, which I wouldn't really expect given current
deadlines etc., it really does need to recognize that existing IPP configs are
in fact valid). That's different than previous releases, where IPP w/ cups Just
Worked b/c r-c-printer wasn't involved....

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-01-28 17:03:52 UTC
Yep, fixed in CVS.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2003-01-29 17:52:02 UTC

Changing to DEFERRED (for when I actually teach the tool about that URI scheme).
