CUPS Printer Test Page Update

Post by foberle » Tue May 07, 2019 11:45 am

Mostly curiosity, but ...

I'm running Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon version 4.0.10 with kernel 4.15.0-48-generic, which I keep updated.

This morning I received an update to "fix" the CUPS Printer Test Page that is located at /usr/share/cups/data/default-testpage.pdf.

As near as I can determine, the only change is that the Linux Mint Logo has been removed from the page.

Is there a story here and, if so, does anyone know what it is?

Thanks

Answer:
Please, read Clem's post on solving the problem Cups cant print test page in Tara Mint19.
Clem explains why the Mint CUPS testpage had to be changed.

How interesting!! Thanks very much for the reply.

I guess I never experienced the issue discussed there (my printer is an HP OfficeJet 6700), so wasn't aware that folks had difficulties.
