after upgrade printer properties not recognized (paper, duplex etc)
Status in cups package in Ubuntu:
after an upgrade from ubuntu 15.04 to 15.10 the print dialogs (eg in
okular, firefox etc) do not display any printer properties and do not
allow to change anything. for example, default paper setting for our
main printer is now in okular "Letter" while it's clearly an "A4"
printer. in okular and firefox one cannot change the duplex options
in short: while remote printers are still recognized and listed, it
seems their settings are not.
while my clients are version 2.1.0, our institute cups server runs
version 1.5.3 and i don't see any easy way we can force them to
i tried to force the lower version by stopping both cups services
(cups and cups-browsed) and creating an /etc/cups/client.conf with
ServerName x.y.z/version=1.1 but it seems this is not supported
anymore. lpstat does not see any printers but the "add /version=1.1"
message is still issued, although obviously not supported. are these
inconsistencies any indication of a possible bug?
