OpenSolaris CUPS LPD Printing Followup
By Michael Tin on Jan 27, 2011
In my earlier post I complained about CUPS in OpenSolaris (actually it was all OSes with CUPS 1.4) not auto-detecting the LPD queue name correctly. I filed a bug #3755 in the CUPS bug database and apparently this is now fixed in CUPS 1.5-current. Now CUPS will prompt you with a manual URI to fill out if it detects that the LPD queue name is empty. I feel good knowing I found a bug that caused me a bit of grief and that someone fixed it.
