Thanks for the answer, but I'm afraid I'm still having no luck.
The SystemGroup line that you mentioned is set to lp rather than sys, though this is commented out:
Further down in /etc/cups/cupsd
, I found the following lines:
# You definitely will want to limit access to the administration functions.
# The default configuration requires a local connection from a user who
# is a member of the system group to do any admin tasks. You can change
# the group name using the SystemGroup directive.
However, I've tried adding root to both the sys and the lp groups in /etc/group
, but CUPS is still not letting me log in (even after I restart it).
PS I tried un-commenting the SystemGroup line in cupsd.conf
, but this didn't work either.
