Hello,

to enter my root password to configure the new printer - which
is already configured and I do not want to modify.

Is this avoidable? Is this a bug?

I'm using opensuse 11.0 and gnome.

And there is nothing visible (e.g. a window title or something
like this) which indicates which program it is what shows
up this stuff?

And there are also no ckeck boxes like
[ ] configure it now
[ ] do not configure it now, but come up later again
[ ] go away and do not come up again for this device
[ ] get lost and never come up again for any device

Strange software.


By the way:
I neither use Gnome nor KDE. I use only a plain window manager.
There are too many "friendly" and "helpful" automatisms
in the desktop systems which annoy me - which does of course
not mean that the desktop systems are not the right thing
for usual users.


Kind Regards
Johannes Meixner
