Bug#392052: kdeprint: KDEprint and CUPS error localhost read failed(15)

Hi Christopher

If OpenOffice is having problems, then it probably isn't KDE to blame. Are you using the OpenOffice KDE frontend?
That might account for the connection, I suppose. Best way to be sure if it's a CUPS problem or a KDE problem would be to try to print from a GNOME/GTK app, or anything totally non-KDE related.
- Open control panel -> printers. Now (don't ask why), as a normal user, I see list of printers. I ask to print test page and it worked!
- Open OpenOffice and print: it works.
- Open a text file with Konqueror and print: have the mentioned error.
- Open Kpdf and print a pdf file: have the mentioned error
- Open KGhostView and print a pdf file: have the mentioned error
- Open GV and print a pdf file (using Kprinter): it works
- Open control panel -> printers, print test page: it works

Problem seems to lie with Konqueror, Kpdf and KGhostView (others?) when they call kprinter.

Quoting daniel huhardeaux <devel@tootai.net>:
Package: kdeprint
Version: 4:3.5.5-1
Followup-For: Bug #392052

When trying to print from an application, during initialisation of printing system, it stops, the list of printers is not showed and the message (translated from french) appears:

A problem appears during requiring list of printers. Connection to CUPS server failed. Check the status of CUPS server and see if it's properly installed and running. Error: localhost: read failed (15)

http://localhost:631 is working like a charm, printing of test pages from cups to. If KDEprint is runned with administrator rights, the printer list is shown. Printing from openoffice is not working to.

The problem appears since the last update.
