mistakenly enabled Kerberos authentication via CUPS

Asked by tekneek on 2012-06-07

I mistakenly enabled Kerberos authentication while configuring a shared printer using CUPS 1.5.3. My OS is Ubuntu 12.04. I don't have Kerberos setup on my computer. The problem is I don't know how to disable this feature. The message I get when I try to disable it is: "Unauthorized

Enter your username and password or the root username and password to access this page. If you are using Kerberos authentication, make sure you have a valid Kerberos ticket."

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Okay, so now you know... I'm new at this, but I figured it out and corrected my mistake. I opened nautilus as root and then replaced cupsd.config with the default one. 'cupsd.config' is located /etc/cups/
Finally, I rebooted and now it's working. I hope no one else makes this ignorant mistake; however, if you do, I hope this helps.
