[opensuse-factory] [Canon] cups unconfigurable in 12.2
Can anyone print with any kind of Canon? This has always been unnecessarily painful since "upgrading" from a reliable old LaserJet to a Canon MF, but it was easier prior to 11.3, when printing became totally impossible for nearly a year until Canon released a driver update compatible with post-11.2 Cups. In my current 24/7 11.4/KDE3 system I can only count on printing to work printing of plain text files with Firefox. Anything more complicated or in random other apps is likely to flood the print spool and/or cause the printer to error and halt. Same thing happens in 12.1, trying to print a web page in Firefox or Konq4 makes printer "printer data error".

This time on a 12.2 system, with a Canon driver updated by Canon just last month, regular user is blocked trying to configure a printer in YaST2 by "restart locally running cups daemon". As root on first in YaST2, I get the printer apparently setup, but nothing happens trying to test print besides what shows up in the cups logs attached, apparently from the sample.drv. On subsequent tries, root gets the same failures as trying to set up as user.

Naturally printing from M$ works just fine.

Cups output from rpm query is also attached.
