[abrt] system-config-printer-1.2.3-3.fc14: authconn.py:102:set_auth_info:TypeError: Gtk.Entry.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None
Last modified: 2010-09-15 03:17:33 EDT
abrt version: 1.1.5
cmdline: python /usr/share/system-config-printer/system-config-printer.py
comment: The above because the HP LaserJet 3020 ran low on toner, but changing the toner didn't get it to print. So I wanted to delete + recreate it.
reason: authconn.py:102:set_auth_info:TypeError: Gtk.Entry.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None
release: Fedora release 14 (Rawhide)

Traceback (most recent call last):

How to reproduce
1. Deleted a networked printer
2. Started to recreate it
Created attachment 427995 [details]
If you are able to reproduce it,
can you start the program from command line
and post the output here ?
Not sure about how to reproduce it but this is happening because we left self._user as None in the AuthDialog class. We need to fill in *something* for the username field in the authentication dialog, so before calling set_auth_info we should check if it's None and, if so, set it to cups.getUser().
Sorry, but I fixed the problem that gave me this. We used to have a HP LaserJet 3020 as stated, but it was changed for a HP LaserJet M1522nf MFP. When that one ran low on toner, the toner was changed but CUPS had wedged somehow (AFAIU, it tried to inquire the toner status via whatever the old one used, and the new one didn't understand) I tried to unwedge by deleting/recreating the printer, and there it crashed. Afterwards creating the new printer worked fine.
OS Release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
How to reproduce
1. Started printer configuration.
2. Select add network printer
