Quick groups question...

I'm wanting to enable non-root access to the CUPS web-interface; can I make a group to which I can add the user to allow this?

If not, which config file do I edit to get around it?

Thanks. smile

Re: Quick groups question...

sudo might do it. visudo edits the /etc/sudoers table
use ALL=NOPASSWD so you do not have to use root's password every time you run cups.

Re: Quick groups question...

I appreciate the info cs25x; the reason I couldn't just sudo was because I've removed root as added security, so I can only sudo now (however, sudoing firefox for example doesn't affect the login for CUPS access).

I resolved this easily by just adding myself to 'daemons'; this isn't what I want though, since I don't want my normal user to have access to all the daemons; I only want acess to CUPS. Can anyone tell me the way to allow a specific user to have access to the webadmin page for CUPS? A look through cupsd.conf turned up nothing... :?

Re: Quick groups question...

In that case, use the lp group with cups access and add yourself to it, or go change the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to restrict access. I do not have a printer these days, this is just from memory. Look in cupsd.conf, and try the SystemGroup. The other spot in there is the Auth/access permissions section(s) I think you should be able to solve your problem in there.
