Troubleshooting file from Firefox print
As per your request..
Anyway, I didn't see any job in the printer page....
Forgot to say that applications from Openoffice bunch print fine
That's not a troubleshoot.txt file. Please attach the actual troubleshoot.txt file it asks you to save on the very last screen. What I need is information from the CUPS server, so it doesn't matter that you don't see the job listed when you try to print.

The problem is that a previously submitted job required authentication and this had not yet been provided. The auth-info-required IPP attribute gets set on the queue, and is removed when the auth-info is provided.
The CUPS scheduler rejects new jobs that do not provide the required auth-info fields when auth-info-required is present.
So what's the solution? One solution is for the GTK+ print backend to implement an authentication dialog. Not sure yet if this is what is needed.
I've asked on the cups development mailing list for a clarification of this behaviour.
Yes, the solution is for the GTK+ print backend to implement an authentication dialog, and work is underway to do this.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
