non admin citrix user no permissions to add network printers

We are planning to replace desktop PC with Thin Clients. The issue I am having is; We are publishing a desktop and a non admin user does not have permissions to add network printers. Where and how do I go about granting the non admin user this ability?  Thanks

Printing in Citrix environement has always been critical (even it's less and less critical now).
So, using Citrix layers add security to avoid users to install network printers when the drivers are not locally installed on your server. Once the driver is locally installed on the server, then all of your users will be able to connect to the printers shared from your print server.

I don't know how many different models and physical printers you have, but if your installed base is large, the best is probably to switch to a universal driver to limit the number of drivers to administrate on your different servers.

If you are adding the printers by selecting Add Local Printers, look at this article. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;297780

For network printers options (2nd selection), usually do not need any special permissions.
