Question lpr as non-root


I'd appreciate it if someone could give me a hand real quick. . .

My problem is that when I try and run lpr and print from a non-root user account, it fails
with a message of "client error: not possible". . .
I realize that I just have some permissions set wrong, but I'm not sure where to look.

If I try to print anything as root - it works perfectly.

Thanks for help in advance,
