CUPS password
« on: October 05, 2008, 11:53:50 am »

Hi. I've just installed the necessary printer drivers in order to get my Deskjet 500 (mono) working, and everything's been fine until the CUPS interface asked for my password. It won't accept my usual password or any other I can think of which might work.

Is there a special CUPS password I need to use in order to log in, or a way to bypass this?

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic.

Edit; I've managed to sort it myself. All it took was the addition of a root password.

Thanks for your attention.
