Description Gerald Teschl 2003-06-22 06:00:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I just wanted to share a printer for all computers on eth1, but
it did not work

Investigation of cupsd.conf showed a line

Listen "":631

and changing this to


made cupsd happy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-06-23 05:38:47 EDT
Fixed package will be 0.6.63-1.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2003-06-23 05:39:17 EDT
Created attachment 92546 [details]

In the mean time, please try this patch.
Comment 3 Gerald Teschl 2003-06-24 14:33:25 EDT
Nope, not fixed in redhat-config-printer-0.6.63-1.i386.rpm.

Now it writes:


Oviously it only strips the first quote, but not the second one and not
the newline. Awaiting the next fix;-)
Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2003-06-24 14:38:24 EDT
Just noticed two more things:

1) There is another line containing only ":631". In particluar the end
of the file looks like

# End of "$Id: cupsd.conf.in,v 1.8 2002/12/13 16:23:54 mike Exp $".
<Location /printers/lp>

2) There is no warning present that this file is generated by printconf
and manual changes will be lost.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2003-06-25 07:09:45 EDT
Oops, forgot there would be a newline in the string.  Fixed in
redhat-config-printer-0.6.64-1, which should appear in rawhide later today.
