Description Matthias Clasen 2007-03-25 17:22:27 UTC
The new eggcups may be better in the cups communication, but there are
several unfortunate regressions in the UI:

- no way to hide the icon (old eggcups had a context menu for that purpose)

- File -> Close Window does not work

- Window comes up ridiculously wide. Please ellipsize the "Document" column
  and give it a reasonable width

- useless statusbar, just remove it

- no way to clear the list

- no window icon set

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2007-03-25 19:31:38 UTC
File->Close was fixed in CVS.
Yes, needs ellipsizing.
Okay, will remove.
How do you mean 'clear the list'?  You mean cancel all jobs?
I can set a window icon (I didn't think the old eggcups did actually).


Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-03-25 19:58:51 UTC
With "Clear" I mean "Remove the completed jobs from the list". As things
currently stand, the list is ever-growing, no ?

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2007-03-26 11:46:50 UTC
No, the list is not ever-growing, in the same way that 'lpstat -o' is not
ever-growing.  Completed jobs may be viewed by toggling 'View->Show completed jobs'.

Please try system-config-printer-0.7.59-1.fc7.


Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2007-03-26 12:24:21 UTC
At what point is a completed job dropped from the list ?

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2007-03-26 12:35:33 UTC
When it is completed.

Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2007-03-26 17:59:40 UTC
No, when it is completed, it gets hidden. It stays on the list, as "Show
completed" proves. I meant drop for good.

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2007-03-26 22:36:02 UTC
It just depends how you've configured CUPS.  The default is for it to preserve
job history (but not job files).  Try 'lpstat -Wall -o'.

This is all CUPS policy.
