Hi everyone,

I am very new to aptosid (and kde). Searching for an application to show all current printer jobs I found two ways: calling the http://localhost:631/jobs and printer-printer applet. I decidet to try printer-applet. After installing i tried to start. I only got this error message:

      Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/printer-applet", line 1161, in <module>
    applet = JobManager()
  File "/usr/bin/printer-applet", line 297, in __init__
    notification = NewPrinterNotification(bus, self)
  File "/usr/bin/printer-applet", line 1050, in __init__
    bus_name = dbus.service.BusName (PDS_OBJ, bus=bus)
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/dbus/service.py", line 129, in __new__
    retval = bus.request_name(name, name_flags)
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/dbus/bus.py", line 306, in request_name
    'su', (name, flags))
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/dbus/connection.py", line 630, in call_blocking
    message, timeout)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Connection ":1.24" is not allowed to own the service "com.redhat.NewPrinterNotification" due to security policies in the configuration file


Does anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks for your help

greetings

ToK

Only just noticed this problem on my system. It's caused by bug #609463

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=609463

The workaround/solution is to install system-config-printer, run printer-applet and it will enter the system tray. When a print job is in progress the icon will pop up in the system tray. Use it to access print job control.

KDE4 desktop is still behind KDE3 print management. eg. no booklet printing, no print selection. All the system software exists it just needs an effective GUI. Hardly "fit for purpose" in a commercial environment.

You should not use any of those GUI for printer configurations (not reliable, and missing advanced settings), but instead the browser based CUPS interface you can visit at http://localhost:631

That didn't work for me. Instead I used the following
http://localhost:631
