Subject: CUPS printing problem
To: freebsd-questions@freebsd.org

I am having a problem printing from CUPS.  I did a fresh install on 6.2
release and cups-1.2.7.  I am trying to configure for an HP1022.  The
install was successful, and I can manage the printer from the web
interface.  But, when I try to print a test page, the light on the printer
starts flashing but nothing gets printed.  The printer admin page shows
the following:
        Description: HP1022
Location: office
Make and Model: HP LaserJet Series PCL 4/5 CUPS v1.2
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: socket://10.0.1.222:9100
ID      Name    User    Size    Pages   State   Control         State
HP1022-1        Test Page       root    18k     Unknown         stopped

So, it appears that after I send the job the printer goes into "Stopped"
state.
I checked the logs, and there is something I don't understand.  It says:
cupsdAuthorize: No authentication data provided
What does this mean?  Where do you set authentication?  Is this the cause
of the problem, or a symptom of something else?


The problem would  be that  you did not give the access to those users who
wants to print
in KDE you invoke system settings/printer manager and there  you add the
users.

Choose the printer in question and click properties tab and on there would
be box like , general, interface etc, scroll down to the bottom most there
you will find users, once you choose those box you will see change on
properties box

Click change and choose allowed users  and add that user in question.

This may resolve this issue
