When I see things like that, two things spring immediately to mind:

1. They're hoping for a different answer (whether or not that's likely).

2. They're not reading the list, hoping that someone will reply to them,
directly.

Another possibility is, with the volume of activity on this list, that
perhaps they missed a reply.

I know that, even with the threading and filtering available in
Evolution, I generally have to be very vigilant about not missing a
reply to a question or issue that I bring up here. It's easy to miss
something.

Cheers,

Chris

What Fedora version? If this version is an upgrade, did you use yum,
preupgrade or what? What Brand of printer and version and how is it
connnected? Have you tried with selinux=0 at the grub prompt on boot to
see if selinux is the issue?

May not be what you want to hear, but might consider doing a fresh
install and see if that works.

BTW, I can print just fine with libreoffice and evolution (didn't try
gedit but am sure I can) on an HP wireless printer (although plugged in
via usb to the desktop).

Have you filed a bug report in Bugzilla? If so, please post a link to
that bug report here.

Thanks,
Tim.

Please do not suggest to turn SELinux off at boot everytime something
goes wrong on a Fedora System. As root you can turn SELinux into
permissive mode. setenforce 0, then try your application, if it works
then SELinux is probably the problem, if it fails SELinux is not the
problem and you can turn SELinux enforcement back on. setenforce 1.
Your method will cause a relabel when SELinux is turned back on.

But better yet, check /var/log/audit/audit.log and see if SELinux is
complaining about anything. grep evolution /var/log/audit/audit.log, if
there is something there, it is a good chance SELinux is blocking something.

I have been trying to print all morning with LibreOffice. Finally gave
up and downloaded Abiword because I needed the doc.

I've filed a bugzilla on the crash.

Not only that, if you have the SELinux Troubleshooter working (and you
should, you know) it will pop an alert if and when there's a problem
with SELinux. I have BOINC running and one of the projects is
Einstein@home. For some reason, SELinux doesn't understand that all of
the Einstein projects need to have access to certain device files and it
keeps complaining. Granted, the projects are run in permissive mode so
that the access isn't blocked, but it's a tad monotonous to have to
reset the context for almost every project I do. (There doesn't seem to
be an overall fix for this because it's filename specific.) If you're
not getting any alerts, there's almost no chance that SELinux is involved.

Joe can you send me an example of the AVC you are seeing? Is this F15?
