RE: [K12OSN] CentOS + USB devices



I'm setting up a new k12ltsp server. Our current server (not setup by
me) has USB printer directly attached to a client and it is setup in
CUPS using Device URI socket://finaid76:9100 since that client is always
logged on with user account finaid76. 

The lts.conf file has an entry
[finaid76]
        PRINTER_0_DEVICE        =/dev/usb/lp0
        PRINTER_0_TYPE          = U

Since there are no clear instructions with printers I am duplicating
configurations that currently work.

For USB thumb drives, what is the Fuse group?

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.

Sincerely,
Dave Hopkins
