Bug Description

Binary package hint: system-config-printer

printing is a bit slow compared to the usual (pauses up to minute or more between prints if text-basèd and full page graphic documents take up 30 or more minutes before the printer actually prints). can't view queued document properties via print manager interface.

This bug was fixed in the package system-config-printer - 1.3.1+20110222-0ubuntu9

system-config-printer (1.3.1+20110222-0ubuntu9) natty; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/37_jobviewer-attributes-window-convert-numbers-to-strings.patch:
    In the code for the job attributes window in the job viewer (right-click a
    job and choose "View Attributes") on two points arguments have to be
    converted to strings. Once for the notebook page labels as the job IDs
    are numbers, and second for the attribute values, they can be numbers
    or even data structures (LP: #733088).
