Possibly, but why it does not work from the application menu launcher, but ok from MCC?
Gnome on Wayland
It could be related to bug 19498.
tried lightdm / xfce - failed.
fails when invoked from application menu launcher (print settings)
fails when system-config-printer invoked from a user terminal.
works when system-config-printer invoked from a root terminal.
works when mcc invoked from user terminal.
works when mcc invoked from a root terminal
Is this still valid today ?
sadly, valid for Mga8.
This is release_blocker for a reason.
Making Mageia even better than ever is best direction.
In order to do right thing, this bug should be examined and fixed as soon as possible.
Packagers, please change the status to "Assigned" when you are working on this.
We will make a decision on the relevance of the release_blocker tag on 1st October 2020 QA meeting.
