Lost password - LUPU 5.1


Hi,

A bit of a silly one this, I installed puppy LUPU 5.1 on an old box for my father a few months back. Today he got a printer for it, when I try to add the printer through cups I need the password, here's the rub, I've forgotten what it was!! Is there a quick and easy way to recover or change it??

I did try Google first as I thought there would likely be other dunces like me out there, but apparently not, I'm special!!
