The problem exists only with the latest cups 1.4.4 update. Going back to 1.4.3, printing works fine again, even with gnome-vfs or other gnome packages installed. This is probably a bug with firefox not interfacing with cups 1.4.4 properly, that only surfaces when certain gnome packages are installed.

This is a strange one:

http://www.cups.org/str.php?L3606

CUPS people blaming Mozilla for the bug (not gnome-vfs). I have the latest GSB gnome-vfs package installed with Firefox 3.6.6, and using cups-1.4.3. Printing works.

Upgrading to cups-1.4.4 and removing gnome-vfs also works. Hmmm.

I get the same with the different package combinations.

Thumbs up Remove ~/.gnome/gnome-vfs as well

Me too. Along with the removal of the old gnome-vfs, I had also to rm -rf ~/.gnome/gnome-vfs.

Seamonkey suffered the same problem, also.

But, thanks, it worked!

Mozilla fix

Ok, it appears that the last batch of updates took care of the problem.

I still can't print from firefox. It's not the same crash, but firefox doesn't see my printer even though it's visible to the rest of the system and working fine.

Crap, you're right. Updated to firefox 3.6.8 and the crash returned back from the dead.

Same problem here. I have never had gnome-vfs installed, as far as I can tell. But I tried Chromium, and had to install orbit2 and gconf as dependencies. Not exactly sure, if this caused the problem, though, because after removing these packages and the configuration files the print crash problem in Seamonkey 2.0.6 is still there.

I am on Slackware64-13.1-stable, BTW.

For me it helped to recompile CUPS against GNU TLS and disable to compile against OpenSSL. Don't know if I need any of them at all, but after that the crashes were gone

Has anyone informed the Mozilla and CUPS guys of this workaround? Maybe, if they know it, they can prepare updates of their software...

I for sure didn't notice them. I found this advice a week ago somewhere else but don't remember where it was

As you can see linking against gnutls has been the work around to this problem since end of July / beginning of August.

Quote:
This effects just about all distro's and *bsds. We are all now forcing users to link cups to gnutls to work around the bug.
Question: is Patrick et. al. going to release a new build of Cups 1.4.4 linked against gnutls for Slackware 13.1?

I used Suse 10,2 and now using 11.3 with FF 3.6.8 and TB 3.1.3 -- and KDE ... no problem observed so far. Only one with Suse 10.2: when printing out of FF the printfile never was closed unless I shut down FF. But with 11.3. this problem is gone ...
