[Bug 1500636] Re: commands passed to cups fail. File missing


Till, The printer is a kodak aio hero 9.1
and the driver is my c2espC driver, with command filter command2esp.
This all used to work, for both print self test and clean heads.
But recently I noticed that it no longer worked.

However, if I make a text command file called "selftest" containing

and then send that page to the printer via cups using
lpr selftest
The printer does generate its selftest page.
So it seems like cups and my command filter still work.
That makes me think this could be a problem with system-config-printer.

Do these command buttons in system-config-printer currently work for
other printers that have command filters?

  commands passed to cups fail. File missing

Status in system-config-printer package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  xubuntu 15.04  64 bit
  system-config-printer 1.5.6

  when I click the button "Print self test page", I expect the printer to produce a self test page
  instead I get error "client-error-bad-request" and no self test page.
  the cups error log has the entry
  Print-Job client-error-bad-request: No file in print request.

  Note that I can get the printer to generate the self test page by
  printing a command file from terminal.

  So it seems that system-config-printer is not providing the command
  file, or not providing the command filename to cups?
