remote printer : freeze when not available
At home I have a desktop and a laptop. The printer is connected to the desktop.
On the laptop, I added a "remote printer", using ipp://... It works fine.
But when I am at work with my laptop, of course my desktop printer is not available. When I want to print something (in gedit for example, but the same with all softwares), It totally freeze the appli during about 1 or 2 minutes (wait... exactly 65 seconds) while it looks for the printer.
This search should be asynchronous, it should not freeze the program (during 65 seconds, which is not 1 or 2 seconds) which wants to print.
I use Ubuntu 8.04.1.
