maybe you can use putty with an ssh tunnel to forward the 631 port for
cups' web interface to her..and make a 'printeradmin' group that has
access...and make a user within that group for her...?
with my librarian I actually gave her an account on the K12LTSP box and
she could connect via one of the clients in the library and made a
script that purged the que and enabled the printer...and placed a
'laucher' on her desktop.
Sorry to be of so little help.
