Hi, some weeks ago I replaced my desktop machine and installed a fresh LMDE 201204 with MATE. (Had the older LMDE with Gnome before on my previous machine).
Now when I wanted to use lp from the shell (need it for some older technical purposes, worked in my previous setup; CUPS and its printers are running fine in MATE), I got the error "WARNING: couldn't connect to: /tmp/keyring-xxxx/pkcs11: No such file or directory". There really was no /tmp/keyring* whatsoever. (BTW, why does lp need this at all?)
After some googling I found https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=783568 mentioning in
/etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.desktop the line
I appended MATE; to that line which seemed to work insofar that now this directory appears and matches to the line from printenv.
But now lp, lpr, lpstat, lpadmin just terminate with no action or result other than printing one or two empty lines in the shell. What is wrong there?
