Bug-Fix

Problems with the Login

Please check, if the Windows work force HS-WOE is activated: Settings → Network → Further Options → WINS → Work Force

If you get a message saying “Warten auf Authentifizierung” (ENG: “Waiting for authentification”) and nothing else happens, the printer needs to be put into “Passworteingabe erzwingen” (ENG: “force password input”) mode. The easiest way to achieve this is to follow the following instructions in the terminal:

sudo launchctl stop org.cups.cupsd
sudo sed -i.bak 's/AuthInfoRequired negotiate/AuthInfoRequired username,password/g' /etc/cups/printers.conf
sudo launchctl start org.cups.cupsd
