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


How reproducible: Always


Steps to Reproduce:

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 05:11:09 EDT
Sorry for the delay.

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

  <driver>bj8pa06n.upp</driver>

to:

  <driver>gimp-print</driver>

Does that fix the problem for you?
Comment 5 Steve 2003-05-23 16:18:39 EDT
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 16:21:07 EDT
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 17:31:34 EDT
See bug #88171.
Comment 8 Steve 2003-05-23 21:22:18 EDT
yes, this backslash fixed it!

Thanks :)

now bug can be closed since it work :)
