They work for me, but users need to be in the Fuse group.

Is this correct? Isn't it socket://IP_address_thin_client:9100 or
socket://hostname_of_thin_client:9100 (which are typically 192.168.x.y
and ws###.ltsp for the base install).  We have 80+ printers connected
to thin clients and they work fine but we are using the parallel port
for the printers, not the usb port.
