10.5: Disable printer queue password requirements

Better than doing this on the command line, open a browser to localhost:631, and edit the configs there. This allows you to remove the offending lines and restart CUPS w/o restarting the computer.

See this post for more details:

10.5: Disable printer queue password requirements
Authored by: mleacy on Nov 10, '08 11:14:01AM

I've been to that site, but it advocates a sledgehammer approach rather than a scalpel approach. If you want to go from totally locked down to totally open, then that's the way to go. I do not want to go to totally open. I want to selectively grant rights.

My question was, would simply removing the one item from the <limit> tag allow non-admins to add printers? The logic would seem to follow, if this hint is correct and functions as described.
