Description Kuba Ober 2004-03-26 13:53:20 UTC
When CUPS is the printing subsystem, there's no way to have a non-cups generic 
printer, like 
 
[pdf] 
	path = /var/spool/... 
	comment=PDF printer 
	print command=/usr/bin/pdfout %p %s 
 
If a specific print command is given for a printer, the generic printer should 
always be invoked instead of the catch-all subsystem like cups. 
 
This is a regression from 2.x as e.g. if my subsystem was lprng, it was still 
possible to have "custom" printers that would only have a print command.
Comment 1 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2004-03-26 14:27:25 UTC
add 'printing = bsd' into the [pdfprinter] definition.
This was changed between 3.0.2a and 3.0.3pre1.
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2005-02-07 07:39:46 UTC
originally reported against 3.0.3pre1.  Moving back to version to 3.0.2a
to remove preX and rcX versions.
Comment 3 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2005-02-07 07:42:08 UTC
originally reported against 3.0.3pre2.  Moving back to version to 3.0.2a
to remove preX and rcX versions.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
