Security and OS 9.0

We just got OS9.0, mainly because of the  multi-user security features. But I have the following  problem:

We have a blue G3 connected a laser printer through ethernet and to an Epson SC740 through the USB port.  I have created three different access settings:
1/ Admin: Full acces
2/ Normal User: No access to control panels but full access to all other programs
3/ Guest User: Acces limited to one application.

The problem is that the Normal User can not print using the USB printer.  It can access the chooser, select print and specify printing preferences, but it can not print (not enough privileges), even if in the multiuser control panel I specify that this user has access to all printers.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

J.J. Carvajal

Is there a message that pops up saying whats wrong? Any error message at all?
I believe this could be caused by the printer driver for the Epson.

1.  If the print spooler is proprietary for this printer, multiple users may consider it a control panel or it could be an application you didn't grant access to.  In this case, try to turn off background printing.  You may find the user can now print.

2.  The driver itself may somehow be considered a control panel or an application you didn't grant access to by multiple users.  In this case, you may be forced to give this user access to the control panels.

3.  If you manually selected the applications which the user has access to, you may have forgotten to select the print spooling application.

I am assuming the user CAN print to the laser printer.  That is how I arrived at the conclusion that it might be an epson USB driver that is conflicting with the multiple users control panel.
