The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 8129
Application requests printing on Format A5, but prints as A4
Last modified: 2011-08-31 16:06:21 UTC
Samba is being used as a print-spooler in conjunction with CUPS and a bunch of Postscript printers, fitted with A4 and A5 trays.
After an upgrade from 3.4.8 to 3.5.8 we ran into following problem:
Some printouts from application, intended to print on format A5, are printed out on A4, instead of A5. After reverting back to Version 3.4.8. everything was fine again
We're not very deep in the sources, but found something strange, that obviously might be the cause of the error:
there have been some new entries defined ("A0" & "A1").
The symbols "DMPAPER_*" are referring as and index to the entries in the array default_forms. But it seems, that the indices have not been updated correctly to match the (new and shifted) entries in default_forms
We deleted the new entries (A0 & A1), recompiled samba, and verified correct functionality again.
Karolin, could you please revert 73bec197a91a15aa9a69c9a3868ed51bdd3674ea in 3.5.
