Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9457
rhs-printfilters is missing functionality required by new printtool, other enhancements.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
The newest version of printtool has some new functionality (printing
directly to the HP jetdirect port 9100) that requires support in the
printfilters. I can send the patch for printfilters again tomorrow
against this bug ID. I need to back out some of the local customizations
that aren't ready for general consumption.
If these patches aren't applied, the mods I sent for printtool need to be
Ok, please send the printfilters patch.

Directprint script, required for functionality in printtool -- needs to be in /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters and chmod 0755
The directprint script depends on Perl -- I can rewrite it to use bash and nc,
but it will add a dependency to the RPM.
perl is ok; the troff-to-ps filter requires it anyways.
When can we expect to see a patched 'rhs-printfilters' package?
Next rawhide release (version 1.64-1); apologies for the long delay.
