No Printer Notification Icon in RH9/Gnome


I'm in the middle of my second day of playing with Linux. I've managed to configure a couple of printers I had on my Windows network for use on the Linux box, and they seem to work (passed test pages).

I was reading the user's guide, and it talks about a "printer notification icon" that I should be able to add to my task panel, but I can't seem to find this. There was a "printer setup" icon that I think was a launcher for the printer management system, but I don't think that's the same thing that's being talked about here:

(notice that the icon is slightly different than the one next to the Workspace Switcher icon)

I think this icon is supposed to appear during print jobs, and be next to the up2date status icon, but it's not. There is a notification area configured, since I can see the up2date status icon and the su icon (when active).

Any pointers?

Additional Info

Some additional info...

I discovered that the name of the app is 'eggcups' by inspecting the properties of the link under Main Menu/System Tools/Printing Notification Icon. If I try to launch it manually from the main menu, nothing happens.

If I try to run the app from shell, I get the following error:


(eggcups:7416): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.


Anybody know what this means?
