Description Michal Jaegermann 2007-01-26 21:09:56 UTC
Description of problem: Various numerical job options to 'lp' can have, in fact, decimal fractional parts. This is even important when one is trying to print text files with as big fonts as feasible and there is a substantial difference between things like 'cpi=9.25' and 'lpi=5.5' and their integer parts. Despite of that current 'system-config-printer' does not allow to enter values like the above. Actually the situation is more curious. If you will edit /etc/cups/printers.conf directly and use fractions there then the next time 'system-config-printer' will display those correctly, with save them after some modifications were made, and will even allow to change fractional parts as long as a decimal '.' is around. The moment one will erase that character fractions are becoming inacceptable. 'system-config-printer' from FC6 suffers from the same affliction and this is regress from FC5 where putting fractional values was not an issue at all and those parameters were actually correctly passed to printing. An impact of this bug is currently minimized due to bug 224645 which means that it really does not matter what is accepted or not as whatever is typed in options values seems to be summarily ignored; well, at least when printing text files.
