Description Roy Stogner 2005-07-05 17:31:48 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/false StumbleUpon/1.75

Description of problem:
system-config-printer finds no driver match for a connected Epson Stylus C86 printer

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect Epson Stylus C86 to USB port
2. Power on printer
3. Attempt to add a queue with system-config-printer

Actual Results:  system-config-printer gives the following message:


No match for USB device:
  mfr "EPSON"
  model "Stylus C86"
  desc "EPSON Stylus C86"
  cmdset "ESCPL2,BDC,D4"
Please report this message in Bugzilla:


The printer works beautifully if the C84 driver is chosen, but users shouldn't have to guess or websearch to find that out.

Expected Results:  The printer should have been recognized and it's driver autoselected or at least selectable via the correct model number.

Thanks for the report.

This was fixed upstream.

So when are we going to see this? It is now 2006-3-25 and I am running Linux
and still get this problem (and the message to report it via bugzilla)
