I have some labs with OS X Mountain Lion.
I know that since 10.5 everytime the printing process have a problem (stuck paper, etc) all print jobs pause themself.
The problem I'm having is that now I have to go to the laps, computer by computer to unpause the printer using my admin credentials and that takes a long time.
I gave teachers admin lpadmin priviledge but they complain that it still takes a long time to go one by one and unpause the jobs on all students.
I need a permanent solution to this. I want to give all NETWORK users the autorization to pause and unpause the printer. But I don't want them to have admin rights to the computers of course.
How can I do this?
I saw that going to localhost:631 give you access to the cups and you can edit the configuration file where i see some lines about:
<Limit Pause-Printer Resume-Printer....> Can I just delete those Limits in order for this to work? In that case where since there are several references in there for that.
Can I run something like:
/usr/sbin/dseditgroup -o edit -n /Local/Default -q -u AdminName -P AdminPW -a admin -t group _lpadmin
Remember that I need to give in this case lpadmin rights to everyone using that computer. Local and network (AD) users. What will be the correct syntaxis here?
Thanks in advance.
