Bug Description

This is on a fresh Lubuntu 12.04 daily build from 2012-04-20 on qemu-kvm.

When printing, the system-config-printer-applet does not show up in the lxpanel systray.

There are two issues here:

  a. The system-config-printer-applet does not start automatically although it is enabled in "Desktop Session Settings".

  b. When I start it manually I get:

    $ system-config-printer-applet
    WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to: /tmp/keyring-2xPJXu/pkcs11: No such file or directory

It does not terminate, and does not show up in the systray when printing something.

The ~/.xsession-errors file contains a lot of polkit-related errors:

    $ cat .xsession-errors
(polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1:1176): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_variant_new_string: assertion `string != NULL' failed
(polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1:1176): polkit-gnome-1-WARNING **: Failed to register client: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files
** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

For testing you can apt-get install cups-pdf as a virtual printer.

Thank you for your help.
