Hardware :: Cups 1.4.3 - Cannot Modify Brother HL 2040 PrinterFeb 6, 2011
I cannot modify my printer in Cups. In the past when I wanted to add a printer, or modify an installed printer, I clicked on the Admin tab, and I get a prompt to enter a password. I never get the prompt to enter user - root and the root password. So I can not add a printer, or modify one that is installed. My Brother HL-2040 is still working, I can print jobs O.K. it will not print test page. Why do I care? I want to have a better understanding of the location on the lpr and cupswrapper drivers on this system.
I have installed Slackware 13.1 on a second drive, and am trying to convert to that system. In 13.1 cups asks me for Admin user and password, I can enter root + password, and add a printer, and Mandy used to. However, in 13.1 after converting the .rpm files to .tgz files and installing them with pkgtool, I can not 'see' the lpr or cupswrapper driver in 13.1. I wanted to see what it looked like in Mandriva, however I can't and don't know why.
