Have you done:
adduser usrname lpadmin ;Adds the user "usrname" to the group "lpadmin" in
;the /etc/group file so usrname can admin CUPS.
Is CUPS already setup properly, and printing properly from a local printer?
See the above in: KDE-Debian HowTo for KDE2 & Debian3=Woody X86.
If any of this fixes the problem for you, would you please reply to this msg
on this list & let me/us know? Thanks. :)
