This post is related to Why do lp and lpr return unauthorized error? However, I am asking this question to find a workaround to my problem.
I can use lp and lpr using sudo. I'd like to know how I can change permissions, so applications can run lp and lpr as if they were root. For that matter, I'd like to be able to do the same thing.
I've entered a bug on launchpad to cover this, but have not heard back.
