Description of problem:
LiveCD, 16 beta
Trying to configure a network printer (HP LaserJet m1522nf MFP) on the same Ethernet segment, it isn't autodetected. Trying to configure it manually via system-config-printer gives an error message to the effect that FirewallD isn't running. No way out...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
LiveCD 16 beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot, log in, configure network (manual configuration required here)
2. Select "System Tools" ~~-> "Printers", try to set up a network printer
FirewallD isn't running [Is there a firewall?], configuration stops there, can only Cancel.
Set up printer...
I think you're talking about the GNOME 3 "System Settings" application?
there are two possible reasons for this:
1) you want to install network printer which should be automatically detected
- if the printer is published by avahi (mdns), you can try to enable and run avahi service to be able to discover it (don't forget to enable mdns service on firewall)
2) the printer is not automatically detectable
- there is a problem in current control-center that it hides the entry to which you can enter IP address of the printer manually
- I plan to fix this in control-center-3.2.1 (should be released at 17th of October)
Horst, if you run system-config-printer to configure the printer, does that find it?
I had the same issue described by the reporter running from a beta live image.
I was able to run system-config-printer to configure and add the printer after installing hplip to get the drivers I needed.

I ran system-config-printer from a gnome-terminal by hand, and goit the above.
Horst: system-config-printer doesn't have any support for FirewallD and knows nothing about it. Sure you weren't running the GNOME System Settings application?
I can definitely confirm this is happening with the GNOME System Settings application

I ran system-config-printer from a terminal IIRC.
Horst: could you run it again please, to check? system-config-printer knows nothing whatsoever about firewalld.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '16'.
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 16'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 16 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
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 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 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.
