Description Richard Renard 2005-10-03 12:59:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
The following fix add support for kerberos authentication when adding a new smb printer. 
Note that this will only work if printconf-gui is launched via sudo using /usr/sbin/printconf-gui, and the user have a valid kerberos ticket.
(i don't know if consolehelper can pass environment variables)

As a side effect username and passord are not stored anymore in the printers.conf file, and one can only print if he have a valid ticket or anonymous printing is allowed.

Current drawback is that it requires smbspool from samba-3.0.20.

This is a fix in the printer_share_accessible function

Tested in Active Directory environment

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. user can specify printer without entering his credentials
