PostPosted: Tue 17 Jan 2012, 13:53    Post_subject:  SOLVED: CUPS 143 .pet is asking for root password?  

I installed the cups package 1.4.3 through the puppy package Manager.

I now need to set up a printer and when I go through the cups setup wizard it requests a username and password. how do I get around this? Trying to setup a root password fails with:

sh-4.1# passwd root
passwd: pam_start() failed, error 26

Cups wizard worked before I installed the version on the puppy package manager. Can I restore the original package perhaps?

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.

If woofwoof is the password. It dosn't work with "root" as the username.

What is the username?

Thanks :

followed the instructions on the link and edited /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
I can now do anything in cups without needing a non-existent password.
I changed all the "AuthType" to "None" and Commented out "Require user" lines. I also changed the order to allow,deny.

AuthType None
#Require user @SYSTEM
Order allow,deny

I also commented out the following line.

# Administrator user group...
#SystemGroup lpadmin

I then rebooted. Just to be sure.

Woof Woof!
