[closed] Annoying confirmation window in CUPS

Good day!
My system information is here: https://www.q4os.org/forum/viewtopic.ph … 004#p25004
When I launch Control Panel ---> Peripherals ---> Printers, in CUPS Configuration page I constantly have very annoying confirmation window, which appears every time I click on something in that page.
Please watch video in 720p quality setting:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1txKHEp … drive_link

I do not have this annoying window if I launch Firefox, then type localhost:631 in address bar, and after that enter username and password in fields.

Workaround: Open your browser, type in the address bar localhost:631, then type your account username and root (sudo) password.

Before asking for help please read this topic: https://www.q4os.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=3502   If you have problems with WiFi network, try to install the Network Manager using Q4OS Software Centre.

We can confirm this issue. We consider it as Q4OS specific one and it will be addressed as soon as possible.

Or as I suggested https://www.q4os.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=4420 dump the web localhost browser interface and use system-config-printer instead - almost every other linux distro does.

Q4OS detects and uses system-config-printer automatically, if installed. So you only need to install it:
$ sudo apt install system-config-printer

The above is also a temporary workaround for this issue.

The fix is prepared and will be released within the new q4os-base package.
