10.5: Disable printer queue password requirements
Authored by: pgsengstock on Jan 22, '09 02:21:50PM

Still not fixed in 10.5.6. Also, we recently updated our HP drivers for another type of printer, and for some reason, HP changed the default config for one of their PPDs. Now, the PPD in questions that comes down via MCX has the default tray set to the letter feed instead of the tray underneath. Because the clients aren't honoring the printer options set in CUPS, I have no way to fix this.

What a mess. I think I'm going to just bite the bullet and ditch MCX printer management--I've got better things to spend my time on, rather than fielding calls every five minutes because of another stupid printer error. Apple better get their $h17 together, ASAP...
