Re: As of F12 RC3 my printer model is still not shown



I realise that the way this ought to work is for the correct package to
get installed via PackageKit by system-config-printer when it sees which
hardware is connected, and I am working on getting that feature ready
for Fedora 13:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/AutomaticPrintDriverInstallation

this would be great for any hardware, not just printers.

In the mean time, though, perhaps I ought to issue a
system-config-printer update for Fedora 12 to add "Requires:
foomatic-db-ppds" to the system-config-printer package.  Unfortunately
foomatic-db-ppds is 15Mb. :-(

Thoughts?

Tim.

maybe is good to have this on "f12 common bugs" page together with a

yum install foomatic

line.
