Description Gene Czarcinski 2003-01-28 09:41:45 EST
Description of problem:
It would be handy to include printer configuration during firstboot.  Many
(most?) systems have a printer which needs to be configured.
Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2003-10-27 14:16:01 EST
still valid RFE
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-10-12 05:38:40 EDT
It ought to be that most printers can be automatically configured:
certainly this should be true for local printers, and remote IPP
printers can be browsed for automatically.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-09-23 12:56:38 EDT
This would require setting up something like system-config-printer to be a
firstboot module.  Reassigning.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-09-23 16:57:10 EDT
I thought we were aiming for zero user intervention for setting up printers. 
Are we moving away from that goal?
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2005-12-02 14:38:26 EST
Printer configuration should be happening automatically.  Local printers should
be detected by HAL, while remote printers should be handled by IPP.  If
something is not working, this is a bug in another component.
