Description Dennis Wagelaar 2005-04-12 08:48:42 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:
When trying to add a description for an existing printer (added via wizard) in system-config-printer (gui version), the application spits out a traceback and the "Edit a print queue" window becomes unresponsive. Here's the traceback that I got:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/", line 600, in edit_button_clicked
    if self.editQueue.editQueueDialog (iter):
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/", line 452, in editQueueDialog
    self.read_driver_options ()
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/", line 1015, in read_driver_options
    dict[key] = store.get_value (iter, 1)
TypeError: iter must be a GtkTreeIter

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'system-config-printer' from the command line
2. choose a printer and click "Edit"
3. enter a "Short description" and click "OK"

Actual Results:  Window becomes unresponsive (widgets no longer work, window only closes via window manager) and the app spits out a Traceback.

Expected Results:  Windows should close and printer settings should have been updated.

I don't see this.

Please attach the output of 'printconf-tui --Xexport', and indicate which
printer it is that you click on in the above 'steps to reproduce'.

'printconf-tui --Xexport' output

I've attached the output of 'printconf-tui --Xexport'. The printer I've been
trying to edit is SSELHPLJ. I don't know if this matters, but I'm using
'system-config-printer' remotely through 'ssh -Y' (it's the config on our print

Fixed in CVS.  Thanks for the report.

The same bug hits when trying to configure a printer with most of an "Epson"
list.  At least when trying to use "omni-compiled" driver.
