Firewall adjustments

I’ve just released version 1.2.1 of system-config-printer.  One of the changes is that it now uses the D-Bus API of the Fedora firewall tool to actually make firewall adjustments that it needs.

  1. I ran across your blog when I wanted to file a bug on system-config-printer for the Cancel Job dialog who is confusing me a bit because of the Yes/No questions. The GNOME HIG also recommends against using them.

    [ Cancel ] [ Adjust firewall ]

    here instead.

    Yes/No buttons are evil, you know that? Using descriptive button names (like “Allow/Cancel”, “Allow/Disallow”, etc) is much better.

    Fantastic feature, Tim! This is a good solution to the ongoing battle between the browse feature and the firewall system.
