I managed to "install" my HP 3930 in Slack 13.0 with a combo of hp-setup and localhost:631. I had to run the localhost thing to get the proper .ppd (the DJ3920's; I found posts to ensure that this driver works great for the 3930) to show up in hp-setup; I could not finish the installation in localhost because it continually prompted for my username/pw even though I *know* I was imputing my root info correctly.
Afterwards, the printer showed up in cups, but not in the Xfce print manager. So I ran hp-setup again and ran the install again, thinking it'd copy over it (honestly, I don't know why I did this, except just trying everything to get the printer to show up in places where I can print with it, not just the cups thing).
But now two printers show up in cups' web thingy, and I cannot remove/alter/do anything in cups because my root/pw continually get this:
A username and password are being requested by http://localhost:631. The site says: "CUPS"
until I cancel out. Then I just get
Enter your username and password or the root username and password to access this page. If you are using Kerberos authentication, make sure you have a valid Kerberos ticket.
I did a slackpkg search for kerberos and everything it pulls up is installed.
# slackpkg search kerberos
The list below shows all packages with the selected pattern.
[ installed ] - cups-1.3.11-i486-1
[ installed ] - gcc-g++-4.3.3-i486-3
[ installed ] - samba-3.2.13-i486-1
I'm a newb and am now genuinely lost and confused. Any ideas as to what's going on?
