#230 fixed Cluster users get notifications because they're sudoers broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


Users of some (maybe all?) cluster machines get presented with an system notification about restricted drivers being available. They also get prompted when updates are available.

There are a couple issues here.

(1) We should possibly be enabling the restricted drivers (2) We should try to generally suppress these notifications

#432 worksforme collate by default geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


Apparently when you print multiple copies through the default PDF viewer via CUPS, copies aren't automatically collated?

Also, for bonus points, we should make sure we avoid the failure where multiple double-sided copies of a document with an odd number of pages causes the last page of the first copy to be on the same physical sheet as the first page of the second copy.

#465 fixed come up with a coherent plan for debathena-printing-config geofft

Reported by geofft, 14 years ago.


Right now our lpr wrapper is a descendant of a descendant of a hack, solving lots of little use cases but with no particular overarching intention about what it's doing. While we shouldn't forget about the edge cases we're supporting and break them in a rewrite (cf. #455), it's about time to have a clear design and spec for what it's doing rather than continuing its descent into feature creep.

As I see it the two main issues with the current setup is that user-visible behavior depends on users being aware of whether a queue is CUPS and LPRng and that answering questions about the behavior usually requires looking at the source.

This includes: (some of the following are inspired by TODOs in the current printing-config lpr wrapper)

  • Should we support the traditional LPRng arguments that Athena's used for years, e.g., -Zduplex (ticket #444)? Forever?
  • Should we try to get these arguments upstream somehow, or is a cross-platform Athena lpr script that you can put early in your PATH sufficient? (Or do we not care for non-Athena platforms?)
  • Should the LPROPT environment variable be supported? Currently if you are printing to a CUPS queue, and if passed to lpr can be interpreted purely as CUPS arguments (such as if you just do lpr -Pfoo), then the arguments in LPROPT aren't inserted into the processed command-line arguments (see also  RT:1098339). We could desupport it, or support it all the time.
  • How do you default to double-sided printing, etc., for all queues? In theory LPROPT is an answer, but converting LPRng args to CUPS ones in perpetuity is silly and prevents you from actually specifying default CUPS arguments.
  • Are we keeping LPRng clients installed forever, or at some point will we say that if you want to print to an lpd printer, you should add a CUPS queue, and that Kerberized lpd printing is desupported (unless CUPS grows support for it)? (We can also keep the clients around while making lpr.debathena never call them.)
  • Are we keeping Hesiod pcap entries forever?
  • Are we keeping the "Print to LPR..." gtk backend forever? This saved me last week when some subtle BrowsePolling? bug caused only three faraway printers to show up in the pick list, but this is a config change from upstream and one that I think we intended to be temporary.
  • Can CUPS be made to zephyr (ticket #184)
  • Can CUPS be made to have an equivalent of -Zbanner=?
