Fedora 14 fail to auto configure printer
Last modified: 2011-02-01 14:21:54 EST
Description of problem:
I didn't find exactly what is the component responsible for auto configuration of printers when they are plugged in, so sorry if I opened in the wrong place.
I just plugged in my Canon Pixma ip4200 and in the tray a notification has appeared saying "configuring new printer" (I'm using KDE). But besides of the notification nothing happens: no new printers are configured in system-config-printer, neither looking directly in cups.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Plug in a new printer
2.Verify in system-config-printer or in cups that no printers are configured
The printer should be auto configured by system
Please edit /etc/rsyslog.conf and change the line ending "/var/log/messages" to this:
Then restart rsyslog (/sbin/service rsyslog restart), and try connecting the printer again. What messages end up in /var/log/messages then?

Output of /var/log/messages in debug mode
I attach the file with related output of /var/log/messages.
From the lines, I think maybe is a packagekit bug?
For some reason the Python D-Bus proxy is not converting 0 into a dbus.UInt32 type. Here is a fix that explicitly converts to that type.
Needs to be applied to kdeutils.

Strangely, it all works fine under GNOME with system-config-printer-applet and gnome-packagekit.
FWIW, system-config-printer-1.2.6 will export the installdrivers module as part of cupshelpers (i.e. cupshelpers.installdrivers), so the KDE printer-applet will be able to re-use that.
and it works, I close the bug. Thank you!
