Bug description:
  Deleting or stopping print jobs through the "gnome-control-center -> 
printers" menu is not possible.
  (Black rectangle for stopping can be pressed, nothing happens.)

  Deleting with cups via webinterface does work. ( http://localhost:631/

  Please let me know which information to provide.



  The most intuitive way for users to maintain printers and look after
  print jobs is the printing part of the GNOME Control Center. As this
  tool makes use of cups-pk-helper for authentication, a lot of its
  functionality is not working dur to the non-working in cups-pk-helper

  This way a key functionality in Ubuntu Desktop is not working which
  may people turn away from Linux on the desktop.

  [Test Case]

  Do job operations (remove, move to other printer, ...) with print jobs
  using the printing tool of GNOME Control Center ("Devices" ->
  "Printers"). You will see that most or all of these operations do not

  They will work after installing this update.

  [Regression Potential]

  cups-pk-helper is only used by some graphical user interfaces for
  printer operations, like the mentioned GNOME tool. It does not impact
  printing itself, CUPS command line operations, or the CUPS web admin

  Also the changes on cups-pk-helper are not done in its code or its way
  how it works but only in its configuration (using a system user).

  This way the regression potential is low.
