    Default cups - don't login promp when modifying a printer

    Just installed Leap 15.

    When going to the cups admin page (http://localhost:631/admin) I get the following message:
    "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."

    There is no login prompt, although I expect a login prompt (for root + passwd).

    In /var/log/cups/error_log, there are the following lines:
    Code:
    W [04/Aug/2018:10:14:28 +0200] CreateProfile failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown:The name org.freedesktop.ColorManager was not provided by any .service files
    W [04/Aug/2018:10:14:28 +0200] CreateProfile failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown:The name org.freedesktop.ColorManager was not provided by any .service files
    W [04/Aug/2018:10:14:28 +0200] CreateDevice failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown:The name org.freedesktop.ColorManager was not provided by any .service files
    E [04/Aug/2018:10:14:30 +0200] [CGI] cups-brf must be called as root
    E [04/Aug/2018:10:14:30 +0200] [cups-deviced] PID 1215 (cups-brf) stopped with status 1!
    E [04/Aug/2018:10:14:30 +0200] [cups-deviced] PID 1221 (gutenprint52+usb) stopped with status 1!

    cups seems to be running as user 'lp':
    Code:
    # ps auxwww | grep cups
    root       986  0.0  0.1  91796  8488 ?        Ss   10:14   0:00 /usr/sbin/cupsd -l
    lp        1167  0.0  0.0  84092  5780 ?        S    10:14   0:00 /usr/lib/cups/notifier/dbus dbus://
    Does anyone have a suggestion to make cups provide a prompt with credentials when visiting the printer pages...???

    Which browser are you using? There should be a pop up dialogue window presented. Are you sure it’s not just hidden for some reason?
    openSUSE Leap 15.0; KDE Plasma 5

    Browser: chromium. No hidden popup window.

    I tried with Firefox, and guess what; it works the way I expect it (login prompt window) in Firefox.

    Looks browser related!
