How to allow users to administer printers

By default, Debian users are not allowed to administer printers. Only the root can do that. However, it is really easy to give permission for a user to mess up the printer setting. Just add the user to the lpadmin group:

# usermod -aG lpadmin username

Note that both a and G options are important in the command above!

That's it.
