    FC11: CUPS error w/ add printer

    I'm trying to install and configure a printer (networked Brother HL4040CN), but I'm getting an error dialog when I click on "New" in the printer configuration GUI.
    Action 1) Click on "New"
    Response 1) a) "Authentication (fetching device list)" dialog box, request password for root.
    Response 1) b) "Returning HTTP Forbidden for CUPS-Get-Devices (no URI) from localhost" appended to /var/log/cups/error_log
    A2) Type root password and press enter in "Authentication" dialog box
    R2) a) "CUPS server error" box, "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'server-error-internal-error'.
    R2) b) /var/log/cups/error_log:
    E [17/Jun/2009:08:14:12 -0400] Unable to execute /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-deviced: insecure file permissions (0100777)
    E [17/Jun/2009:08:14:12 -0400] Returning IPP server-error-internal-error for CUPS-Get-Devices (no URI) from localhost
    A3) Click "OK" button in "CUPS server error" box
    R3) a) "New Printer" dialog box opens
    R3) b) /var/log/cups/error_log:
    E [17/Jun/2009:08:17:10 -0400] Unable to execute /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-driverd: insecure file permissions (0100777)
    E [17/Jun/2009:08:17:10 -0400] Returning IPP server-error-internal-error for CUPS-Get-PPDs (no URI) from localhost
    A4) Enter "lpr://" and click "Find" button under "Seelct Device->Network Printer->Find Network Printer"
    R5) "No printer found at that address."

    Any ideas? I have installed the RPMs from Brother's web site for both LPR and CUPS-wrapper

    Side note: CPU utilization goes to 100% on one core after I click on "New Printer" in "Printer Configuration - localhost" and doesn't return to normal (6-7%) until I close both the "New Printer" and then the "Printer Configuration - localhost" GUIs.

    I had a similar problem which I tracked down to the wrong owner-ID being set by the Setup-Util from Samsung for the filter files in the /usr/lib64/cups/filter folder.
    Those were set to a UID that didn't exist on my system. I "chowned" them to "root.root" and everything worked (at least the printer printed and the error-message was gone).
    This might not be the problem you are/were suffering from but was for me.
    I use the Samsung Universal Printer Driver Version 2.xx on Fedora 11 x86_64 for a Samsung CLP-510N Network Color Laser Printer.


    P.S. Perhaps you have some other file privilige problems you might want to inspect the group- and other-rights on the relevant files.

    Check /var/log/messages for any errors related to cups.
