Thread: Yast2 Refuses to Allow Edit of Configured Printer

    Default Yast2 Refuses to Allow Edit of Configured Printer

    Using 13.1 with KDE desktop on 64 bit machine with network connected HP LaserJet printer.

    I have used YAst2 to install several printers and all have been working well until recently when I wanted to edit a configuration. Started Yast2 > Hardware > Printers > Printer Configurations and selected the printer I wished to edit. The usual activity was reported "detecting printers" followed by "retrieving printer driver information" but then as these activities complete the window closes instead of giving me the configuration page.

    Any ideas what is going on please? How may I now edit an existing configuration?

    Not sure about what is not working, but as a workaround try using the CUPS browser interface instead

    http://localhost:631/printers

    Select the printer, then 'Administration' > 'Modify Printer' (enter your root credentials when prompted),....

    Hi and many thanks. The printers came up with the drop down options but even with "No Script" disabled nothing responded. Will keep trying.
