Description of problem:
When a network printer is configured and the option "prompt user if authentication is required" no authentication is shown when the user tries to print and the job is held for authentication.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new network printer and choose "prompt user if authentication is required" - this can be SMB, IPP, etc ... just requires authentication.
2. Print any document
3. Look at the print queue and see that the job is held for authentication.
The printout is held for authentication
A popup asking for Windows username and password should be shown and the printout should be sent to the printer by using these authentication information.
Interestingly this works for other applications such as firefox, chrome and GIMP and if authentication is the provided directly to the print queue the job is carried out correctly from the point of being held.
There is an upstream bug that hasn't been worked on for some time here:
