Re: redhat-config-printer: I can't configure a working printer!



Hi,
With the symptoms that you are describing, i think that lpc is stoped or something similar, try the following command (as root):
lpc start

if this not solve your problems, reply with the contents of /etc/printcap.

Good Luck.

When I start redhat-config-printer I get the following errors on the
console:
---8<---
(redhat-config-printer-gui:17616): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid cast
from (NULL) pointer to `GObject'

(redhat-config-printer-gui:17616): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: file
gobject.c: line 972 (g_object_get): assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)'
failed

(redhat-config-printer-gui:17616): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid cast
from (NULL) pointer to `GObject'

(redhat-config-printer-gui:17616): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: file
gobject.c: line 972 (g_object_get): assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)'
failed
---8<---

Although I get the errors above the utility seems to work OK and it
configures a /etc/printcap.

I must have a hole in my head because I can't work this out...Any help
is appreciated.

Regards,

Tom
