Description DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-11-20 17:47:20 UTC
Stop cups, edit manually /etc/cups/printers.conf and add, for example:
JobRetryInterval 60
JobRetryLimit 999

in some printer, start cups

Go on http://localhost:631/ , Printers, set printer option, change something (or just click any set printer option without changing it), edit the conf again: settings are gone.

An other way to phrase it: using the webinterface overrides any manual setting.

These options should be supported by cups 1.3, according to and I can not use them, because if I insert them in the conf, and, later, make a change using web interface, I will have a conf breakage.

[URL] would suggest that you only use the web interface to set up a printer once...

There's nothing we can fix here, it's how CUPS works. If you want it to be changed you should file an upstream bugreport over at their bugtracker:
