Printing to an Epson USB printer from the CUPS test page works fine, as does printing from Opera using the lpr binary installed by CUPS. When trying to print via AbiWord or Claws Mail, they coredump. If the printer is not set as default in CUPS (which is how I had it set before reading this thread), it does bring up the print dialog in Abiword/Claws but it dumps when you select the printer. If the printer is set as default in CUPS, the app dumps right when opening the print dialog and before the printer even shows up on the list of available printers. I think it's a somewhat new problem somewhere because I've been using Xfce, CUPS, and these applications for quite a while on other machines with no problems. CUPS is enabled in xfce4-print as well as libgnomeprint, and GNOME printing is enabled in Claws Mail. The USB permissions are also set properly. I also tried running AbiWord outside of Xfce (in Xorg's default WM) which did the same thing. Maybe it's something with libgnomeprint since both apps use it and both have problems printing? Here is a list of relevant software versions on the non working machine: abiword-2.4.6_1 claws-mail-2.10.0 cups-base-1.2.11_2 cups-pstoraster-8.15.4_1 gutenprint-cups-5.1.3 libgnomecups-0.2.2_4,1 libgnomeprint-2.18.0_2 libgnomeprintui-2.18.0_1 xfce4-print-4.4.1_1 Here is a list of relevant software versions on a machine that is printing properly with Claws-Mail (and probably would with AbiWord if it didn't have a problem with some laser printers): abiword-gnome-2.4.6 claws-mail-2.8.1 cups-base-1.2.8 libgnomecups-0.2.2_2,1 libgnomeprint-2.12.1_3 libgnomeprintui-2.12.1_2 xfce4-print-4.4.0 Here's the backtrace from AbiWord if it helps: http://tntpowerhost.com/mixx941/gdb_abiword_print.txt Please let me know if I can provide any additional info. Thanks in advance for any suggestions on how to fix or debug this. -Mark -- Internet Radio: Party107 (Trance/Electronic) - http://www.party107.com Rock 101.9 The Edge (Rock) - http://www.rock1019.net IRC: MIXXnet IRC Network - irc.mixxnet.net (Nick: MIXX941) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
