Description

LSAC(v2)
The system-config-printer packages provide a print queue configuration tool with a graphical user interface. This update fixes the following bugs: * Prior to this update, the system-config-printer tool did not allow to keep the Server Settings page selected. As a consequence, a blank window was displayed after adjusting the server settings. This update modifies the underlying code so that the Server Settings page remains visible after changes have been applied. (BZ#472398) * Prior to this update, the system-config-printer tool failed to check correctly whether all components of the driver were present when the generic PostScript driver was used. As a consequence, the PostScript printer could fail to start with the error "local variable 'exe' referenced before assignment". This update modifies the underlying code to check for the driver components and the postscript printer now starts as expected. (BZ#651854) * Prior to this update, the authentication details of a queue that was configured for printing to an SMB share were not correctly encoded in the device URI if the password contained an "@" symbol. As a consequence, CUPS could not parse the Device URI correctly and the "Add Printer" operation failed. This update uses percent-encoding for the "@" symbol. Now, the "Add Printer" operation works as expected. (BZ#719459) All users of system-config-printer are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
