Description Chris MacGregor 2003-03-24 22:32:18 UTC

Description of problem:
With a printer configured to use the HP LaserJet 8150 Postscript driver, 
changes made to the "Double-Sided Printing" option on the Driver Options tab
don't get saved.  Specifically, it insists on being set to "On".  The Paper Size
option works normally.  I haven't experimented with the other options, or with
other printer types.

May or may not be related:
I was very surprised to see that the Page Size option apparently defaulted to
A4.  If I wasn't in the US, I'd probably be less surprised...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a printer, as an HP LaserJet 8150, Postscript.
2. Select that printer and click Edit.
3. Click the Driver Options tab.
4. Change Double-Sided Printing from On to Off.
5. Click OK.
6. Click Edit again.
7. Click the Driver Options tab again.
8. Observe that Double-Sided Printing is set to On.
9. Repeat until convinced that it's not pilot error.

Actual Results:  In step 8 I observed that Double-Sided Printing was set to On.

Expected Results:  It should have been set to Off.

Just a note -- this errata should also be included in the Red Hat 8.0 updates,
not just Red Hat 9.
