Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

[edit] What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Printing.

There are several parts to this, and in Fedora 15 the situation is slightly more complicated due to developments in GNOME 3.

In previous Fedora releases the application used in GNOME for configuring printers was system-config-printer. In GNOME 3 parts of that application are being replaced by more tightly-integrated functionality in GNOME itself:

  • print job notifications are now implemented in gnome-settings-daemon
  • status feedback is expected to be implemented there soon as well
  • a new control center module for printing has been implemented

This test day is for testing all aspects of printing, including setting up the printer, sharing printers on the network, and printing jobs.

If you see a problem and are not sure which component is to blame, the Debugging Printing page can help you to diagnose it.

[edit] Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

[edit] Prerequisite for Test Day

In case of problems with the nightly images, the images below were built on Friday (2011-03-25) and work sufficiently for testing printing:

[edit] How to test?

A variety of printing tasks should be attempted, including:

  • Configuring a printer not yet known to the system
  • Printing a test page
  • Printing something more complicated, e.g. OpenOffice document, PDF, email
  • Taking advantage of extra print features of your printer e.g. duplexing, stapling

[edit] Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 15 Alpha, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. Or:

[edit] Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive Fedora 15 pre-release live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD. The most recently built images can be found here (the desktop image is suggested).

[edit] Test Cases

  • Connecting a local printer: Expected behavior is that when a new local printer is connected, drivers will be installed as needed, a queue will be created for it, and the user will see a notification message about it.

Checking the Device ID is correctly listed
The hpijs, gutenprint-cups, foomatic-db-ppds and foomatic packages all contain tags that associate them with the Device IDs for the printers they support. If you are not given the opportunity to install one of these packages when your printer is supported by them, it may be that they do not list its Device ID correctly. You can check this by running /usr/share/system-config-printer/check-device-ids.py as root.

[edit] Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla. Choose the correct component:

  • gnome-settings-daemon for problems relating to job reporting and printer status feedback in GNOME Shell
  • control-center for problems specific to printer administration in GNOME Shell e.g. the new system settings module
  • cups for printing problems that persist even when using command line utilities such as lp
  • gtk2 for printing problems common to all GTK+ applications using the GTK+ print dialog
  • system-config-printer for bugs in the printing configuration program used in GNOME fallback mode and in other graphical environments

If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to the Smolt profile of the system you tested. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.

  1. It installs hplip 3.11.3, but 'hp-setup -i' should be run as root to download the firmware
  2. It performs as expected.
  3. Network printers are shown automatically. Test page works fine.
  4. It shows a disconnected status, but it doesn't last more than 2 seconds and the message disappears. However, the printer works fine.
