Description David Woodhouse 2013-08-13 12:17:48 EDT
My discovery back end gives location information for the printers it discovers.

When I add a printer through the web interface (assuming it works fast enough that bug 996664 doesn't bite me), the location is empty.

You can reproduce this with a backend script like the one in bug 996661:


cat <<EOF
socket socket:// "foo1" "bar1" "MDL:HP LaserJet M5035 MFP" "left"
socket socket:// "foo2" "bar2" "MDL:HP LaserJet M5035 MFP" "right"

When you add one of these 'discovered' printers, the word 'left' or 'right' ought to end up in the Location box. But it doesn't.
