iPrint : Secure printing on OpenSUSE

Hi,

I have again a question. I want to print on a secure printer with iPrint client. I use OpenSUSE 11.3. I have install the novell-iprint-xclient-sh-version.XXX.rpm. But, when I want to print a file, the iPrint client doesn't authenticating me.

How I can say to iPrint client to log me in my tree ?

Thanks a lot

If I use the commande line, iprntcmd, i need to authenticate me. But when i print a document with a gui, i do not have a pop up for authenticate me !

Is the novell iprint for linux doesn't support secure printing ?

I'm fairly certain the iPrint client for Linux does support secure
printing but let me double-check with Novell.

Novell say that the iPrint Client for Linux does support secure printing
- the RPM with -sh- in the filename is the one to use which you said you
are.

64-bit isn't the problem but more openSUSE as it's unsupported by Novell
- the download page for the iPrint Client for SLED11 states "This client
is known to work on OpenSUSE 10.3 and 11.0; however, it is not
officially supported."

So can I ask which exact RPM you're trying? The one for secure printing
with SLED11 is novell-iprint-xclient-sh-6.502.20090929-1.x86_64.rpm.

A quick search suggests that perhaps later versions openSUSE have a
problem - see
http://blog.cundy.ca/2010/01/26/iprint-client-in-opensuse-11-2/ and
http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-help-here/network-internet/405177-novell-iprint-opensuse-11-1-a.html
for possible fixes.

HTH.

could it be because you aren't running OES2 on that opensles 11 server? I know OES2 isn't slated for 11 yet, however, secure printing with iPrint IS authenticating to eDir to be secure.
