In System Settings -> Printer Configuration I tried to change some Options.
This action needs root access, but no authentication pop up box appears.

I'm running fedora 11, kde 4.3.1-9 (x86_64)
Anyone else seeing this? Do I miss a package, have something wrongly

Yes, an oversight, a.k.a. a bug :-) I believe that it is being dealt with

you'll find that there are some related
ones reported, such as asking for Dolphin to request a root password when it's
required. Meanwhile, it's necessary to run systemsettings from a root konsole
for some jobs.
