IIRC (it wasn't on my own box and I currently don't have access to
it) I either fall back to an older version of cupsys or the real
reason for failure was caused by another problem in the cups config.

First of all: you do have "DefaultAuthType Basic" inside
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf, right? Also make sure you didn't activate
the checkbox 'Use Kerberos authentication' on

Read http://localhost:631/help/kerberos.html?TOPIC=Getting+Started
for a little bit information about cups with kerberos.

If you checked all of the above and your setup still doesn't work I
suggest trying an older version of cupsys - grab it from:


BTW: If you don't do that already: consider using mercurial[1] or
gitkeeper[2] for maintaining /etc under version control, it really
helps in restoring old, working conffiles. :)
