Can't Login to localhost:631 (CUPS Printing) in Suse 9.3


When I get to localhost:631 and click on the links for administrative work, it naturally asks for a password. I enter "root" as the username and my root password, can't log in. I've tried all the other username and password combinations I could think of. It worked for Samba (localhost:901). Is CUPS just different?

Are you sure CUPS is running?

YaST System Services (Runlevel) says "Yes" without an asterisk.

And checkout my other cry for help on a similar topic ;-)

This is due to an error in the CUPS configuration, as far as I can tell... I had this same problem, and had to either use "su kprinter" or use lynx running as root, in order to do printer administration.

Today, I found the cause of it - a mistake in the default settings in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf

Look for the line
Code:
AuthType BasicDigest
and change it to
Code:
AuthType Digest
or
Code:
AuthType Basic
After that, you should be able to log in to http://localhost:631/admin with your root username and password, as expected.
