Bug Fix Advisory system-config-printer bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0051-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated system-config-printer packages that fix three bugs are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The system-config-printer packages provide a print queue configuration tool with
a graphical user interface.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, the system-config-printer tool did not allow to keep the
Server Settings page selected. As a consequence, a blank window was displayed
after adjusting the server settings. This update modifies the underlying code so
that the Server Settings page remains visible after changes have been applied.
(BZ#472398)

* Prior to this update, the system-config-printer tool failed to check correctly
whether all components of the driver were present when the generic PostScript
driver was used. As a consequence, the PostScript printer could fail to start
with the error "local variable 'exe' referenced before assignment". This update
modifies the underlying code to check for the driver components and the
postscript printer now starts as expected. (BZ#651854)

* Prior to this update, the authentication details of a queue that was
configured for printing to an SMB share were not correctly encoded in the device
URI if the password contained an "@" symbol. As a consequence, CUPS could not
parse the Device URI correctly and the "Add Printer" operation failed. This
update uses percent-encoding for the "@" symbol. Now, the "Add Printer"
operation works as expected. (BZ#719459)

All users of system-config-printer are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix these bugs.
