           Summary: Become Administrator wrong commandline option
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-cups-manager
        AssignedTo: martin.pitt at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: pascal.devuyst at gmail.com
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

1) Log in as a normal user (NO member of admin and lpadmin group).
2) Right click on a printer and select Properties.
3) Click "Become Administrator" at bottom of Printer Properties window.
4) Enter your user password
=> gnome-cups-manager just quits without a warning.

If gnome-cups-manager is executed from a terminal I get the following output
after clicking "Become Administrator":

ronny at athlon:~$ gnome-cups-manager
ronny at athlon:~$ gksudo: unrecognized option `--properties'
GKsu version 1.3.0

Usage: gksudo [-u <user>] [-k] [-l] <command>

  --always-ask-password, -a
    Do not try to check if there are other means of
    obtaining the password we need running the command,
    or even if we really need it, just ask for it.
  --debug, -d
    Print information on the screen that might be
    useful for diagnosing and/or solving problems.
