My network printer will work OK if I just hit print from an application but if I want to do anything with CUPS itself, then I always have to use root for the username and the root pwd.

Are you just trying to use the kde facility? Or have you installed CUPS?

regards

Well if that's the case you might just need to change the printing permission (sorry I can't tell you how to do that as I usually have to look up shit like that!).

But if I remember correctly, you should be able to log in graphically as root, and change it quite easily - if you can find the files etc etc.

regards
