Updated system-config-printer packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The system-config-printer packages contain a print queue configuration tool with a graphical user interface.

Bug Fixes

Documentation for the pycups library, a part of the system-config-printer packages, was erroneous. The word "as" was missing from some lines and consequently, the code would produce an error when run if the "as" keyword was missing. "As" was added at relevant places to fix this bug. As a result, the documentation text is now correct and complete.
Due to erroneous code in the python-cups bindings for libcups, system-config-printer terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault when handling UTF-8 characters in certain fields. Now, the execution of system-config-printer no longer results in a segmentation fault.
Users of system-config-printer are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
