Description Jan Vlug 2019-04-02 08:59:51 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried to change the name of a printer in
GNOME Settings | Printers | Printer Details | Name
The new name contained spaces. This name was not persisted. I got no feedback that this was because of the spaces in the name, which lead to the assumption that I could not change the name. Please provide clear feedback when using spaces in the printer name.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-control-center.x86_64                        3.30.3-1.fc29

I also noticed that you cannot change the names of the printers that are discovered by DNS-SD.
This is annoying, because you cannot remove them, and they are not working either, so I would like to indicate in the name that users should not use them.
