iPrint client on Linux

Hi
I have installed the iPrint client on a OpenSUSE 10.2 machine.
When I try to add a secure iPrint printer it asks me for a username and
password, something like Local CUPS realm. When I enter my eDir
username/password it doesn't work. iPrint is running on a NW65SP6 server.
What could be the problem?

Re: iPrint client on Linux

Here is the solution I posted to the
opensuse.org.suse-linux.support.printing newsgroup:
Sorry but I am a newb at newbgroup posting, otherwise I would have just
posted a link...

Cheers,

Well actually they do. I am running OpenSuse 10.2 32-bit on an intel mobo
(core 2 duo 6400 with 4GB of RAM). I have the iPrint client installed and
can download ppd's from the iPrint server no problem. I can even print,
and the print jobs actually come out of the printer!!

Of course there were a few steps I had to take, both documented and
un-documented, to get it all to work. Here they are (btw, I installed the
low-security iPrint client) :

A. Modify /etc/cups/cupsd.conf (requires root priviledge)
(Note: the + means 'add the line', the - means 'remove the line' by
commenting it out or deleting it.)

<Location /admin>
+AuthType None
</Location>

<Location /admin/conf>
-AuthType Basic
+AuthType None
-Require user @SYSTEM
</Location>

<Policy default>
#Job-related operations must be done by the owner or an administrator....
<Limit Send-Document blah blah blah....>
+AuthType None
-Require user @OWNER @SYSTEM
</Limit>

#All administration operations require an administrator to authenticate...
<Limit Pause-Printer blah blah blah ...>
+AuthType None
-Require user @OWNER @SYSTEM
</Limit>
</Policy>

B. Modify your account group membership
Add the user(s) to the 'lp' group

C. Add the iPrint listener to your Gnome session startup
1. Go to the Control Center
2. Open the Sessions application
3. Select the Startup Programs tab
4. Add the command /opt/novell/iprint/bin/iprint-listener
5. OK
6. Close

D. Add your user account to the lppasswd system
(as root) lppasswd -a user_account -g sys

A good document for most of this is the Novell iPrint Administration Guide
for NetWare at
http://www.novell.com/documentation/oes/iprint_nw/index.html?page=documentation/oes/iprint_nw/data/front.html

Now I am no expert on Linux, far from it - so I have probably granted too
much access or taken more steps than is really necessary. I haven't tried
to figure out the minimum from the above setup. Please feel free to
experiment

Hope that this helps you out.

Cheers,

Ron
