Description Saro 2015-07-29 05:51:17 EDT
Description of problem:
A cups server is already configured in my laptop(as part of my office lan).
Now if I try to connect a USB based printer to my laptop. I cannot print using this, nor able to configure this printer.

Please note, I can see the printer is detected properly by the laptop (using dmesg). BUT, I cannot configure the printer using the UI, neither be able to add the printer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a cups server already configured.
2. Now, try to connect a local (USB based) printer.
3. Kernel detected the printer, but unable to get the printer configured at all.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Configuring a local usb printer should be quite easy ( although I have a cups server configured)

Additional info:
$ rpm -qa | grep cups

$ cat /etc/cups/client.conf 
ServerName  cups.country.company_name.com

Please note once I add "ServerName localhost" in client.conf, it is working.
BUT, I Need to manually edit this.  This should be easily doable using UI itself.

Could you attach some logs obtained via:

# cupsctl LogLevel=debug
# systemctl restart cups.service
try to connect the printer
# journalctl -u cups.service -e
