Why is cups trying to write to the home dir?  Is this expected behavior?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2007-06-11 08:57:32 EDT
Dan, it's not CUPS code, it's cups-pdf which comes from the cups-pdf package

"SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/cups/backend/cups-pdf (cupsd_t) "write" to
schmitz (user_home_dir_t)."
Comment 4 Remi Collet 2007-06-11 12:28:00 EDT
Yes cups-pdf try to create "Desktop" folder in the user home.

In previous Fedora (<=6) this folder exists, so all is ok.

Since Fedora 7, it only exists on "english" locale (xdg-user-dirs).

I'm working with upstream to find a "good" solution.
