CUPS 1.3.9 lpq fails against 1.4.4 server #3619
Our server environment is running CUPS 1.4.4. We have to support both 1.3.x clients (specifically, 1.3.9 on Ubuntu 9.04), and 1.4.x clients (specifically, 1.4.3 on Ubuntu 10.04).
From a CUPS 1.4.3 client:
epiphany-toilet:~> lpq -h get-print.mit.edu -P sanda
From a CUPS 1.3.9 client
However, using lpstat on the 1.3.9 client, the jobs are displayed just fine:
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
CUPS.org User: debathena
Thanks for looking into this. I just rebuilt Ubuntu's 1.3.9 package (from Jaunty) with the patch for STR #3117, and we still have the same error. I also compiled stock 1.3.11 (without any Ubuntu patches), and again, the same behavior: berkeley/lpq prints that the printer is "ready and printing" but lists no jobs.
I'm a little confused by the patch, admittedly -- it seems to only talk about localhost, and our use case is when talking to a remote server running 1.4 with $CUPS_SERVER or -h set.
