The print job manager applet is now part of system-config-printer, starting with Fedora 7 test 3. I’ve been working on making it better for after Fedora 7 is released, specifically by getting it to tell me when the printer is out of paper, low on ink, on fire etc. It uses the IPP printer-state-reasons attribute for this.
Now it puts little alert symbols on the status icon, as well as using libnotify to alert the user to the problem. (By the way, libnotify is really easy to use!) Here are the screenshots:
I branched system-config-printer at 0.7.63, before these changes were made, so that Fedora 7 just gets bug fixes because it’s past feature freeze.
