Hi Michal, hi johannes,

first of all - I like this RC2. It seems to be clear and understandable

Cool!

o Do all Your ...
please add there "Lookup", "Test server" buttons, ... from current version

OK, done.

o Use a Network ...
Should this be really a radiobutton?
I think this is only one more printer queue and can be used together
with one from above.

Good point!
Johannes and I realized that way there are some button problems in
"Share Printers", "Add Drivers", "Print Via Network" dialog pages.
I will come up with a redesign as soon as possible.

[] Publish printers
It should be something like "Publish printers by default" because this
is global value which can be overwritten by each one individually

OK, done (but not yet on opensuse, as the whole dialog needs some
additional adjustments)

Automatic configuration - some words are here : FaTE #120084

Thanks for the information!
Currently only values from etc/cups-autonconfig are shown.
But maybe we can add something like:
"[ ] Do not Configure PostScript Capable Printers Automatically"

What do you think?


http://en.opensuse.org/Image:Printer_mschmidkunz_rc2_addlocalqueue.png
I don't like "Print Test Page" checkbox idea.This can be done manually
in overview with "Test Page" button.

OK, removed.
The idea was that some users might like to print out something directly
after adding a new queue, but I think that it is sufficient to provide
this via the button in the overview.

[] Exclude From Publishing ...
Show also current global value

It seems that this global value for publishing is quite a complex matter.
Johannes said, that he need to think this through for himself.


Thanks for your comments and have a nice weekend!

Martin
