Description Jonathan Kamens 2004-02-15 02:54:40 UTC
I have a class definition in /etc/cups/classes.conf created using the
Web interface at http://localhost:631/.  It looks like this:

<Class final>
Info final
State Idle
Accepting Yes
JobSheets none none
Printer lj1100-final
QuotaPeriod 0
PageLimit 0
KLimit 0

The printer lj1100-final is using the ljet4 driver and has the
"convert text to PostScript" option enabled.  If I print a text file
with "lpr -Plj1100-final", it comes out just fine -- the correct
margins are set, etc.  If, however, I print a text file with "lpr
-Pfinal", the correct margins are not set and the text is therefore
cut off at the top and the left.  It appears that somehow the driver
options set for the lj1100-final printer are ignored when printing
through the class.

I'm using cups-1.1.20-2 and foomatic-3.0.0-22.

*** Bug 150391 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 2 Joe Harrington 2005-04-21 21:21:27 UTC
There seem to be two problems here:

1) as reported here, the driver settings are ignored when printed through the class

2) as reported on bug 150391, ascii submitted to lpr is printed without any
margins and gets cut off.  I can confirm this.

I don't see these as duplicate bugs.


Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-04-26 11:55:19 UTC
Confirmed.  I had thought that both involved classes, but (2) does not.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2006-04-24 13:07:24 UTC
Note to self: Need to re-test this in FC6 with CUPS 1.2 and network default
options instead of lpoptions.

Comment 5 Sitsofe Wheeler 2006-04-24 15:56:43 UTC
Perhaps this bug should have its version changed to devel given how long its

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2006-10-13 15:19:50 UTC
Fixed in FC6 with network default options.
