Description Michal Ambroz 2012-03-20 15:51:32 EDT
Created attachment 571513 [details] adding smb printer Description of problem: Adding samba printer doesn't work when adding the printer via gnome-control-center. I have tried to put there "printserver.domain", the IP address and also the full URI "smb://server.domain/printer". In all cases I can see in wireshark that the backend is trying to contact the server using the IPP and SNMP protocols, but not SMB protocol. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): control-center-3.3.91-1.fc17.x86_64 cups-1.5.2-6.fc17.x86_64 cups-lpd-1.5.2-6.fc17.x86_64 cups-pdf-2.6.1-1.fc17.x86_64 cups-pk-helper-0.2.1-3.fc17.x86_64 cups-libs-1.5.2-6.fc17.x86_64 cups-ipptool-1.5.2-6.fc17.x86_64 samba-3.6.3-80.fc17.1.x86_64 samba-common-3.6.3-80.fc17.1.x86_64 samba-client-3.6.3-80.fc17.1.x86_64 samba-winbind-krb5-locator-3.6.3-80.fc17.1.x86_64 system-config-printer-libs-1.3.9-1.fc17.x86_64 system-config-printer-1.3.9-1.fc17.x86_64 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. login to gnome 2. run gnome-control-centre / Printers 3. try to add samba (windows) network printer Actual results: Nothing happens, Add button is greyed out all the time, it is not possible to add printer. Expected results: It is expected that: - add button will be enabled - printer network availability will be checked ower smb protocol - new printer will be added Additional info: screenshot attached

As workaround it is still possible to use system-config-printer to add the printer.
Comment 2 Paolo Leoni 2012-04-18 09:56:39 EDT
I have the same issue. This is a good UI but it's useless at the moment without a correct SystemD integration. SystemD on Fedora 17 is loaded and running by default.
Comment 3 Marek Kašík 2012-04-18 10:02:11 EDT
Hi, I plan to add support for samba printers in control-center-3.6. Regards Marek
Comment 4 Ozan Çağlayan 2012-12-19 07:43:56 EST
Is this now supported in Gnome 3.6? I couldn't add a samba printer through control-center in F18.
Comment 5 Marek Kašík 2012-12-19 07:54:44 EST
Hi, unfortunately no. I didn't make it before 3.6 was released. I'm working on this right now and I think that I can say that the patch will be ready for 3.8. Regards Marek
Comment 6 Ozan Çağlayan 2012-12-19 09:29:30 EST
I'd be happy to test any patches. Thank you :)
Comment 7 Michal Ambroz 2013-02-15 08:56:28 EST
Moved the release of Fedora 18 as this issue is still present in the F18 release. Cross referencing the fedora forums: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=1634627 http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=1634634
Comment 8 Marek Kašík 2013-02-18 07:48:17 EST
Hi, I've committed support for adding of samba printers to gnome-control-center's upstream. It will be available in next release (3.8). Regards Marek See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=683229 for additional information.
