I'm thinking at the moment that local CUPS printers will be shown via printservices, yes. This means that when the GTK+ print backend is used, the cups backend should not be used. However, I'm open to ideas about that. --[[User:Twaugh|Twaugh]] 11:05, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Good point. Yes, LibreOffice and KDE print dialogs will need to be adjusted as well, but I doubt that will happen in time for F18. The CUPS command line programs, and libcups, will not be changed. --[[User:Twaugh|Twaugh]] 11:05, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Does this affect CUPS printers (e.g. locally attached) in any way? E.g. will print status still be displayed for these? --Mitr 10:55, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm thinking at the moment that local CUPS printers will be shown via printservices, yes. This means that when the GTK+ print backend is used, the cups backend should not be used. However, I'm open to ideas about that. --Twaugh 11:05, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Will it be possible to use printservice from something else than the GTK print dialog? e.g.

  • LibreOffice? In F17 it uses a different print dialog
  • KDE?
  • (Dare I ask...) the lp* commands, or perhaps even programs using libcups*?

More generally, what is the long-term plan? Coexistence of the two stacks for the foreseeable future? Some kind of compatibility layer? Migration of some/all users of cups? --Mitr 10:55, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Good point. Yes, LibreOffice and KDE print dialogs will need to be adjusted as well, but I doubt that will happen in time for F18. The CUPS command line programs, and libcups, will not be changed. --Twaugh 11:05, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
