Xpra: Ticket #1325: Options for printers configured by XPRA should be accessible


-o -u lpadmin parameters are hardcoded in pycups_printing.py. It should be possible to setup any accepted values through /etc/xpra/conf.d/16_printing.conf.

I would rather avoid having to mix command line parsing from config options and the dynamic options which we have to generate. What are you trying to change and to what value? For what purpose?

The Xapp is not running on the same host and having the option to set printer-is-shared=true would give me a help to setup printing.

Done in r13918, you can edit most of the lpadmin add options in browser/xpra/trunk/src/etc/xpra/conf.d/16_printing.conf.in

Please close if that works for you.

Hi there,

I made a test with the following parameters in 16_printing.conf:

add-printer-options = -E
add-printer-options = -o printer-is-shared=true
add-printer-options = -u allow:eric

Those parameters are well given to cupsd, and cupsd have written the following parameters in printers.conf for the corresponding printers:

Shared Yes
AllowUser eric

Considered as fixed.

Thanks and best regards,
