Please attach the output of 'printconf-tui --Xexport' at that point, taking care
to replace any passwords it may contain with *s.

CUPS manages the remote printer

The config with CUPS having the LaserJet printer config, and printtool managing
a localprinter.

Both printers configured with cups, produces the bug condition

This is the configuration that produces the bug.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-07-01 08:17:25 UTC
With the configuration from attachment #116197 [details], what does 'lpstat -s' say?

Comment 5 Matthew A. R. Sherian 2005-07-02 02:27:51 UTC
[mars@mars-new ~]$ lpstat -s
system default destination: hp7350
device for hp7350: usb:/dev/usb/lp0

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2005-07-03 09:32:07 UTC
Still keeping the same configuration, what about when you run
'/usr/sbin/printconf-backend --force-rebuild' and then 'service cups restart' --
is the 'lpstat -s' output the same?

Comment 7 Matthew A. R. Sherian 2005-07-04 04:09:54 UTC
the printconf-backend force rebuild was performed, but I had the printer
configured via cups. I then went and removed the printer from cups, reran the
printconf-backend fore rebuild command, then added the printer via the gui, and
it was successful. The printer now shows up in CUPS config, and in the GNOME
Print configurator.
