Description Pierre Girard 2005-04-07 16:04:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
Using the command lpstat or lpr never shows anything in the queue as if no jobs were printing.  The jobs are properly submitted from the client to the server as you can see them come out.  Also when you connect to the server you can see that there are queued jobs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. lp -d printer
2. lpstat printer

Actual Results:  client[~]> lpstat hp23

server04[~]> lpstat hp23
hp23-329        712646   Apr 06 10:33

Expected Results:  client[~]> lpstat hp23
hp23-329        712646   Apr 06 10:33

server04[~]> lpstat hp23
hp23-329        712646   Apr 06 10:33

Additional info:

Note that the print server is a sparc with solaris installed but i doubt this make a difference

I don't know if this is related or not but lpstat doesn't give any error messages when the printer doesn't exist:
client[~]> lpstat thisprinterdoesnotexist
client[~]> lpq -Pthisisbogus
lpq: Unknown destination "thisisbogus"!

Comment 1 Pierre Girard 2005-04-07 16:36:07 UTC
My problem seems very similar to bug #90619 (Redhat 9)
It seems this is a "feature" of cups, will it ever be fixed?  Should i just
start installing lprng everywhere?
