gnome print dialog does not allow input for locked print / document server / user code

Bug #325704 reported by Sebastian Schauenburg on 2009-02-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-print (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


User Foo want to print document Bar. Document Bar contains some sensitive data, but needs to printed at one of the print-rooms down the hall. The user does not want anyone else to get his/her hands on these documents and wants to use the available PIN-number-security (which he needs to enter when he is physically at the printer).


If you try to set the PIN number, you can't. There is only a dropdown list with 3 values (defaults, defined in the PPD). The user should be allowed to enter this manually, instead of being shown the defaults.
