[Bug 1497613] Re: cannot set default printer


I have checked your error_log file and it does not show any
irregularities, according to it the setting of HP-Officejet-Pro-8600-2
as default printer should have been done correctly. Do you have one or
more of the files


If you have one or more of these, post the content of each of these
files here.
