The problem occurs in the file /usr/lib/python2.5/dbus/, not in a file of system-config-printer.

I cannot find this file in Hardy or Intrepid. Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

Hardy and Intrepid have a file named /usr/share/python-support/python-dbus/dbus/ which belongs to python-dbus. For me it looks that the file has moved to there. Therefore I am reassigning the bug to python-dbus.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. If you could test the current Ubuntu development version, this would help us a lot. If you can test it, and it is still an issue, we would appreciate if you could upload updated logs by running apport-collect <bug #>, and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.

Thank you for helping improve Ubuntu. Please file a new bug report for this issue in Maverick. There have been many changes since this was first reported, and many applications and files in use then are no longer in use. You can file a new report using "ubuntu-bug dbus-python" in a terminal. This will open a new bug report. You can add a comment to that report stating that it is a possible duplicate of bug 192723, and the logs can then be verified to see if it is indeed the same bug.
