Subject: SCO OpenServer 5.0 root can print to local prtr users can't
I have a Lexmark printer on /dev/lp0, entry in printcap seems fine. root is the only account that can successfully perform an lp to this printer and have it print. Other users can cat > /dev/lp0 and have it print to that printer, just can't get jobs to it through lp.
Remote printing is set up on the machine, but the permissions on /usr/bin/lp seem fine. I can even do an lp from the other accounts and it'll assign a job name, it just won't print. It's not stuck in the queue, doing an lpstat never shows any jobs.
Got something to add? Send me email.
