• Cannot add printer, need to be in the sys group

    I have just installed a new KDE-based system and wanted to add a printer, but it gave me error “Failed to get a list of devices: Forbidden”. Cups is installed, I also tried entering the root password but I couldn’t add a printer.

    Adding myself to the sys group finally solved the issue.

    I was wondering if this is something other KDE users have experienced? Maybe something that needs to be fixed in cnchi, or something I may have caused myself?

  • Ok, I don’t know if I forgot to add printing support in cnchi, but I was also getting an error (Failed to group devices: The name org.fedoraproject.Config.Printing was not provided by any .service files) when trying to add a printer. Solved by installing system-config-printer
