Fixed In Version: hplip-3.14.6-1.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, HPLIP did not correctly handle CUPS denying a requested operation, such enabling or disabling a printer. As a consequence, operating HP Device Manager as a non-root user did not prompt for the root password when the root password was required for an operation. With this update, the password callback is correctly implemented, and operating HP Device Manager as non-root user now always prompts for the root password when required.
