Description of problem:
using printer canon mf4150 I encounter always with this allert.
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/gdm-session-worker from 'create' accesses on the file .xsession-errors.XXTKU0YW.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that gdm-session-worker should be allowed create access on the .xsession-errors.XXTKU0YW file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep gdm-session-wor /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 20:58:29 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.

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 17'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 17 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  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

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.
