If the print dialog shows “Waiting for authentication” and nothing else happens, the printer must be set to “Force password entry”. This is most easily done in the terminal with the following commands:

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
