wrong user in default cups configuration

Reported by: fanta@… Owned by: nico
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03
Keywords: cups configuration user Cc:


The default /etc/cups/cupsd.conf sets the parameters "user" and "group" to root/root. As cups does not like this, various parts of the web interface are defunct. Example: "Administration" -> "Add Printer" will yield an internal server error.

When changing user/group to nobody/nogroup, cups will work as expected. I therefore propose to change the default settings for user and group in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to nobody and nogroup respectively.
