Description Marc Deslauriers 2003-01-23 01:11:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115 Description of problem: When trying to set up an SMB printer, I cannot use the "specify" button to set the credentials. Here is what I'm doing: 1- Start System Settings/Printing 2- Click the "new" button 3- Click on the "forward" button 4- Leave the default name as-is, click on "forward" 5- Select "Networked Windows" from the drop down. The name of the windows computer running winxp that's sharing the printer appears. When I click on the arrow beside the name, nothing appears. 6- Click on the "Specify..." button 7- Fill out the appropriate information. Click on "ok". I get back to the screen with the computer name in it. Nothing has changed. 8- Click on "Forward" 9- Get the error message "You must choose a share, not a host". Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): phoebe 8.0.93 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. See description 2. 3. Actual Results: Error message Expected Results: I would expect the share name to appear in the window after entering the correct credentials in the "specify" button. Additional info:

So that's redhat-config-printer-0.6.35-1. After finishing with the specify... dialog, you should have a new share listed in the main browse screen; is it not there at all, or just not selected? How about if you use lower-case rather than upper-case to specify the host name?
Comment 2 Marc Deslauriers 2003-01-23 12:40:47 UTC
The new share never appears under the computer name. Only the computer name still appears in the window. I have tried both uppercase and lowercase information to no avail. Another machine I have with RedHat Linux 7.3 works as expected with the same share.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-01-23 14:55:23 UTC
Oh, I see it now. Thanks for catching this. Fixed package is redhat-config-printer-0.6.39-1. It will appear in rawhide in due course, but in the mean time you can grab it from ftp://people.redhat.com/twaugh/tmp.
Comment 4 Marc Deslauriers 2003-01-23 15:21:18 UTC
I've upgraded to 0.6.39-1. Unfortunately, I still get the same thing. The share name never appears under the computer name.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2003-01-23 15:25:41 UTC
If you run 'redhat-config-printer' from a terminal and try adding the printer, do you get any output in the terminal?
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2003-01-23 15:26:14 UTC
Oh, by the way, did you make sure to install the .i386.rpm file (not just the .src.rpm)?
Comment 7 Marc Deslauriers 2003-01-23 15:35:49 UTC
Yeah, it's installed: [mdeslaur@linux mdeslaur]$ rpm -q redhat-config-printer redhat-config-printer-0.6.39-1 Here is what appears on the console just after the "Specify" dialog is filled out: [mdeslaur@linux mdeslaur]$ redhat-config-printer Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/printconf/util/addQueue.py", line 822, in smb_specify_clicked machine, sharename = match.groups () AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'groups'

Oops, please install the -gui package that I just uploaded. :-)
Comment 9 Marc Deslauriers 2003-01-23 17:54:06 UTC
Everything's working great now, thank you!
