How can I disable printer on Mac OS X user account
Posted on 2008-10-09
My son plays kids games on my iMac and tends to click the print button. He's disabled so I have no way of telling him NOT to click that button. I know that at least one game on there, a painting game, when it's complete it flashes and makes noise asking the user to print the completed page. Of course he can't help himself to click something like that.
In any case, I've looked everywhere in the preferences, printer settings itself, user accounts, and even google and can't seem to find a way to disable printing for a specific user.
I don't want to turn the printer off (it's shared) or remove the paper, delete any jobs he created, and then reinsert the paper either. I need a true and blue method to disable printing on that account. Any help is MUCH appreciated.
