CUPS User ID and Password
« on: November 06, 2018, 06:59:46 am »
On the CUPS administration page (http://localhost:631/admin) when I click on "View Error Log" I am prompted for a user id and password. None of the user ids/passwords I have entered work.

Does anyone have any idea which user id and password CUPS is looking for?

which cups version exactly? Meas what does ANPM or yum say about the cups rpm version? As it should not prompt you for any password, if everything is installed correctly. And which klusrmgr version?
kind regards

I don't remember manually installing it so I think it was installed during the install of ARCOS.  ANPM says:

CUPS                  2.1.3-10
cups client          2.1.3-10
cups-filesystem  2.1.3-10
cups-filters          1.17.2-3 (oc00)
cups-filters-libs  1.17.2-3 (oc00)
cups-libs              2.1.13-10

I just updated  klusmgr from 1.1.2-1 to 1.2.1-1 and now have a kLIBC User Management icon on my desktop

Hi Doug

Have you tried cups since updating and running klusmgr? - I ask because I seem to recall that was the fix for the user/password problem with the rpm installed cups.

You may also want to use ANPM to check that all cups packages are current.


Regards

Pete

After updating everything I could think of that was related to CUPS, including klusrmgr, I still could not get past the user id and password prompt.

But when I assigned a password to root, and saved the file in klusrmgr, I could then get past the user id and password prompt.  And CUPS started sending stuff to my printer. Very nice.

Thanks for the help

Doug,


Is this for your HP M452 that you referenced over in my thread?

Eric,

Yes it is. Although when I wrote that I did not realize duplexing wasn't appearing as an option in CUPS. That problem turned out to be the wrong *.PPD file. I found the correct PPD file and attached that to a posting I made in the thread "problems installing a PPD in PM". Duplexing now appears as an option on those apps that print directly to CUPS - such as qpdfview.

Now my problem is getting duplexing to show up as an option for applications that print though the PM print system.
