Bug#334453: libgnomeprint2.2-0: selecting a non-default lpd/lprng printer does not work

Package: libgnomeprint2.2-0
Version: 2.8.2-1
Severity: important

If using lprng (and presumably lpd), choosing a non-default printer
always prints to the default printer.  This is:


Though this is fixed in 2.10.2, on sarge, when coupled with
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=334450 you just can't
print to anything except the default printer when not using cups.  This
is a major shortcoming.

Attached is a patch from CVS to fix this issue.  Just drop into
debian/patches and recompile and printing will work properly.
