Description stpierre 2003-03-11 19:02:09 UTC
On Solaris systems which replace the Solaris version of lpstat with the LPRNG
version, OOo is unable to autogenerate a list of available printers. 
Specifically, even though "lpstat -s" generates a list of print queues, when in
OOo, the menu "File->Print->...Printer Name" only lists "Generic Printer".

The output of Solaris "lpstat -s" looks like:

  system for <RemotePrinter>: <SystemName>
  device for <LocalPrinter>: <DeviceName>

But LPRNG's "lpstat -s" returns information in the

  PrinterName@ServerName (forwarding to RealServerName)
  PrinterName@RealServerName 0 jobs

interspersed with some headers that look like:

                             Windows 2000 LPD Server
                                Printer \\IPaddress\ServerName
  Owner       Status         Jobname          Job-Id   
  Size   Pages  Priority

Specific software versions are:

  LPRNG version 3.5.1
  Solaris 8

TM->US: Seems to be more a prrinter/printing problem than a framework
issue to me. Please have a look. Thanks !

More an Enhancement than a Defect.
Comment 3 philipp.lohmann 2003-04-16 12:49:49 UTC
will add support for that style
Comment 4 Martin Hollmichel 2004-05-28 15:10:54 UTC
according to the announcement on releases
( this issue
will be re-targeted to OOo Later.

I installed LPRNG 3.8.27 and the output of lpstat -s now conforms to that of the
SystemV version on lpstat; so i don't think we'll have to do anything about this
after all.
