this got me wondering.


have you give thought to *group*?

because problem is with *authentication*, are you
'authenticated' if you add your user name to 'cups group'?

ria, under md 9 or 10, i had problems in printing as a 'user'
and i believe that doing so enable me to print.

i do recall that i still had to enter 'root' password to make
any changes to configs.
