           Summary: kdeprint option -P selects wrong printer
           Product: kdeprint
           Version: 0.0.1
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-print-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: habenich planetsserver com

Version:           0.0.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          gcc version 4.1.1 (Gentoo 4.1.1-r3) Target: i686-pc-linux-gnu, Thread model: posix
OS:                Linux

My print jobs are served by a printserver running CUPS.
A query at the server gives 3 printer (correct): printer1 printer2 printer3.
With the printer setup (KDE control module), I do define 2 special settings for printer 1: printer1/eco and printer1/highres.
Now all 5 appear in the printer dialog of the "kprinter" application (correct):
     - eco
     - highres

All correct so far.

Now I start 'kprinter -P "printer1/eco"' and printer2 appears (BUG!)
Or I do start 'kprinter -P printer3' and printer1/highres appears (BUG!)

It seems, the parsed name from the -P argument is mismatched with the listentry in the printing dialog. Same for argument "-d"

I need this option (-P) to select a special printer with xsane. Can you solve this?
