Can I set the default printer on a user level?


Hi All, I'm runnig Mandrake 9.1, and I would like to set the default printer based on the user that logs in. Is that possible? can I set it up with some type of login script, and what are the commands.

Thanks
Robin

I've looked through the documentation, I'm using Gnome. In the mandrake control center, I can set the default printer, but that is a system wide setting. I can't figure out how to tell it, when userB logs in, I want to default printer to be printerB.

There are multiple users logged in at any given time too...
So I can't change the system default when the user logs in.
