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


More investigation:
Using ubuntu live DVDs : commands in system-config-printer of ubuntu 13.10 work OK. In ubuntu 14.10 they do not work.

I uninstalled system-config-printer 1.5.6 from my xubuntu 15.04, then installed version 1.3.8  The commands work OK.
So some change between system-config printer 1.3.8 and 1.4.3 seems to have stopped the commands from working.

  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?
