It'll be every time you connect the printer, not every time you print.  Changing component to hal-cups-utils.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2008-11-04 13:32:53 UTC
As far as I can tell this warning is just wrong.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 03:00:24 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

Comment 4 Tom London 2009-01-13 14:31:20 UTC
I haven't seen this message for quite some time.

I'm running rawhide, so hard for me to test with F10.

Closing as "rawhide".
