Shawn,
In the standard K12LTSP (at least in ver 3) install a Gnome user gets a
"Printer" icon on his desktop. Clicking this opens up all the printers
available with the default printer highlighted. Now if a user right
clicks on the printer he wants to set as default and selects "Make
default" option this becomes his default printer.
