System Configuration: Allow Managed Users to Add or Delete Printers - Mac OS X
In Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later, access to add or delete network printers on a client computer is controlled by membership in the lpadmin group. You can control the ability of managed user accounts to add and delete printers by controlling the membership of this group.
This fixlet adds the "everyone" group, of which all users are a member of, as a nested group of the "_lpadmin" group. This grants access for all users of the system to add, edit, and delete printers as well as manage other aspects of the CUPS printing system.
