Description Steve 2003-04-23 01:25:07 UTC
Description of problem: Printer Canon s600 unusable under 9.0, fune under 8.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.0.2

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure the Canon S600
2. Try to edit the config = crash
Actual results:
Print in economy mode (300 dpi)
When I want to set it to 600dpi, I press the Edit button and I get a crash of
# redhat-config-printer
Cannot read file /usr/share/foomatic/db/source/driver/bj8pa06n.upp.xml!Couldn't
load driver information.Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/queueTree.py", line 510, in edit_button_clicked
    if self.editQueue.editQueueDialog (iter):
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/editQueue.py", line 414, in editQueueDialog

  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/editQueue.py", line 906, in write_driver_options
    for option_tuple in option_list:
TypeError: iteration over non-sequence

Expected results:
Able to configure the resolution
Able to print in 600dpi

Additional info:
I could go farther using redhat-config-printer-tui
The printer was working fine in 8.0 when using a 600dpi resolution

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2003-05-21 09:11:09 UTC
Sorry for the delay.

Could you please try editing the file
/usr/share/foomatic/db/source/printer/Canon-S600.xml, and change this line:




Does that fix the problem for you?

Comment 5 Steve 2003-05-23 20:18:39 UTC
Thanks for this "patch"

Well, this halfa fixed the problem...

now I can print, but only at 300dpi (econo mode)...
i.e. the resolution box has no effect...

normal effect of the resolutions:
300x300 (default) = econo
600x600 = normal
1200x1200 = twice the size

right now, it only print in econo, so I guess the resolution box dosen't work...

Comment 6 Steve 2003-05-23 20:21:07 UTC
I forgot to say, it fixed the gui crashing at least...
just need to fix the resolution now...

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2003-05-23 21:31:34 UTC
See bug #88171.

Comment 8 Steve 2003-05-24 01:22:18 UTC
