Found the anwser myself after some more digging: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/manual.html states NOTE! According to the URL specification, HTTP URLs can not contain a user and password, so that style will not work when using curl via a proxy, even though curl allows it at other times. When using a proxy, you must use the -u style for user and ...
Thank you for the suggestions. I had a lot of other troubles with that installation, all due to my own misunderstandings, so, in the end I backed up the little work I had already done, and simply re-installed Linux Fedora 17, I made a careful note of the passwords I used, and have done one "Authentication" all right so far; not the printer, I haven't got to ...
If you have sudo privileges you should be able to do this: $ sudo system-config-printer If this dialog cannot come up after providing credentials to sudo then the credentials that you're being asked for are likely for a CUPS server that isn't necessarily your local server. This is the system whose username/password you're being prompted for.
You could boot into single user mode, mount the filesystems mount -a and set/change the root password passwd in linux booting into single user mode could be achieved by setting --init=/usr/bin/bash as a kernel option.
I have a T410 w/o the reader but I'd check out this page to see if there is anything there that can help: Fedora Wiki - Features/Fingerprint.

You can do any one of these four things: Log in as a user that is in the wheel group and fix it from there Log in as root from the console/ILO Boot off of a CD, mount /etc and fix /etc/group Restore /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow from the most recent backup
You can boot from a live cd or usb drive, mount your system partition, modify the nessecary files, boot your system again.
I had a similar problem; here is my situation. I have my account info setup in Evolution, minus my password. Everytime I type something in the GNOME search bar, it asks for my password. The closest thing to solving my problem was at 12.10 - Access Prompt keeps asking for password - Ask Ubuntu, but only so far as the following In my particular case, I ...
In your comment, you said that /bin/su has the following mode/owner: -rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 30092 Jun 22 2012 /bin/su There are two problems here. it needs to have the set-uid bit turned on, so that it always runs with root permissions, otherwise when an ordinary (non-root) user runs it, it will not have access to the password info in /etc/shadow nor ...
1. wheel group? This is likely because your useid is not in the wheel group. On Red Hat distros you can explicitly disallow users who are not in this group from running the su command. Here's what the su PAM configuration looks like by default: $ more /etc/pam.d/su #%PAM-1.0 auth sufficient pam_rootok.so # Uncomment the following line to ...

The permissions on this directory would be the first reason. Does ftp have write access to this directory? $ ls -ld /var/www/ drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 4096 Jan 27 08:38 /var/www/ $ ls -ld /var/www/* drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Jan 27 08:38 /var/www/cgi-bin drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Jan 27 08:38 /var/www/html Can I ftp with /sbin/nologin? You should be ...
